Open Studio - Friday May 01 - Masks and Stencils

OPEN STUDIO WITH CHRISTINA

I believe in letting my art speak my truth for me. I know that when I am open to playing with art and craft supplies my skillset will produce for me, my curiosity will propel me, my discernment will be my guide  and my intuition will interpret the vibration of my soul's voice.

These classes are hosted in a webinar format.  Once you pay, you will receive instruction on how to join the webinar live.  All questions will be addressed aloud during the workshop.  If you can't attend live, then you will be able to replay it at your leisure once the replay link is sent.

Special Covid Lockdown Pricing $11+hst per workshop (reg. price $29/class).

Next open studio: Friday, May 01/20, 1-4pm EST for live participation.

Theme is:  Masks and Stencils - Positive and Negatives.  In this open studio workshop you will learn how to make a custom stencil, a mask and a cut-out all from the same image.  You will learn how to integrate these into your paintings using paint and collage materials.  You can complete this project as a stand-alone painting and/or use the techniques to create depth, repetition, shadow, reflection, mirroring and more within your own art...and that's just the skillset part!  The fun comes when we learn to let go of our restricted parameters and we learn to listen to the unique voice of our creative soul.

Duration: 3+hrs (suitable for ALL levels of experience).

Supply list: Substrate of choice, I like wood cradle panels but the decision is yours.  Paints, for this project I will be working with acrylics.  Mod Podge, matte medium or paper glue of choice, an exacto knife, scissors, brushes, baby wipes, paper towels, assorted collage papers, one image to cut out exactly - for this example I used a bird, and then assorted tools of choice; stamps, sponges, rub-ons etc...

These courses have been recorded as individual modules from a larger all-inclusive mixed media course.  I sell them affordably in individual modules for easy access and to reduce overwhelm when learning the techniques.  All of the videos can be downloaded to your computer for time and time again viewing.  They are passcode encrypted and I ask that you do not find ways around to share these videos for public viewing as this is how I earn a living as an artist :-)  Thank you! 

WELCOME TO OPEN STUDIO where skillset is built, curiosity is encouraged, discernment is nurtured and truth in creativity is explored.
