Deep Dive into Gelli Printing – $100


It’s time to grab your tubes of acrylic paints and join me for two days of learning the “Art of Gelli Printing”.  This class is for beginners to experts. In case this is new to you, Gelli printing  is a form of mono-printing that uses a gelli plate and acrylic paints to create textures and layers of color. No worries, I will provide a complete list of supplies. If you are more experienced, I have some new techniques that speak to complex layering, and delve into color combinations.  

I will also show you ways to use your prints, from card making to beautiful collages. What I love about this art form, personally, is how it helped me find my own artistic voice. I love the endless choices it provides for me to be a unique artist. I have to warn you, it is addictive!!! 

 I look forward to sharing what I know and love, and hope you come away from the class excited to make more prints!

A Splash of Color – $175


Nirmal has a beautiful style using a lot of color and “loose-ness”. His free style with watercolor is stunning! He plans to demo in the morning and then send us to our workstations to spend the rest of the day working on our individual projects. His demonstrations will give quality direction and motivation! He wants to spend individual time with you, helping you through your painting.

Nirmal will be demonstrating a floral in a vase using his approach to painting, developed with strong vibrant colors with very few layers.  However, you may bring whatever subject matter you want to use for your project; just render a drawing on watercolor paper (he uses Arches 140 or 300 lb.) and bring it to class.

Nirmal’ s goal is to provide an atmosphere that is both creative and supportive, an enjoyable hands-on experience, teaching specific and memorable information that you can take home and use in your work.
