What have I been doing the last two mornings....well one of my favorite things teaching.....and one of my favorite thing to teach watercolor collage using oriental papers. When you have a variety of oriental papers they are just so luscious to look at and to touch and then fun to tint and design color on them. That is just what we did the first day with watercolor. They were dry the next day and the collage began, tearing and cutting and of course pasting shapes into creative designs. So proud of all the students.....some were totally new to art.....yeah! Hope they will love it like the rest of us. They concentrated and worked really hard....and it is hard to do all this in just 6 hours but I do believe they have gotten the nack of it and MY wish is for them all to try it more at home. Send pictures you all. Take a look at them in action below!
Thanks National Park Community College Continuing Education and Coronado Center for sponsoring the workshop
Wire Wrapping A Bead Workshop
This was a 6 hour two day workshop in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas sponsored by National Park Community College Continuing Education at the Coronado Center in the Village. Had a great group of woment who really did a wonderful job wrapping and designing. We even started a "tree of life" piece they will finish at home and I hope they send pictures. The participants not only came from the Village but also from Hot Springs and surrounding areas. A mother and Daughter came from the northern part of the state too. What fun is that!?!?!? The majority of the ladies had not wire wrapped before which always makes it exciting to teach a new creative process to someone. Take a look at their accompolishments in the below slide show. Thanks NPCC and Coronado Center for letting me teach.
I am an artist who has been creating for many years in all types of media.
