We are very excited to offer a variety of premier art workshops in mixed media, watercolors, acrylic and more. Each workshop encourages networking with fellow artists in a studio environment and valuable interaction with instructors.
Jam-Packed Gel-y – $200
You will learn how to create beautifully layered prints, truly get the most out of your stencils and layer the patterns, how to layer paints on your Gel Press plate to make your prints stand out, and so much more. Even when achieving a grungy print, you will learn to avoid the muddy-looking print. Learn how to use the things you already have or find around you to create gorgeous gel prints. Once we create a pile of prints, we’ll look at different ways we can use those prints in our art and projects we can quickly make.
“Finding Our Muse” Abstract Painting – $500
Jacqueline Sullivan is returning for a second year by popular demand!
In this workshop we explore the idea that the “Muse finds you working”. Working in a series of small abstract paintings on paper, we will work quickly for the first couple of days, cranking out a small series of paintings. Using acrylic paints, collage, and drawing media, we will work in multiples based on specific guidelines and examples. The speed of working will force us to work intuitively. Each series will develop from a given theme or technique that the instructor will present before the series is started. These small paintings will be used as sketches for larger works. As an option, the instructor will demonstrate how to bind these works into a book for future reference.
Jacqueline’s travel reservations and accommodations need to be completed by May 10, 2022 so help us fill this class and sign up as soon as possible!
Anything Goes!! – $200
Please note: This class is limited to 20 participants.
Painting and Composition Encounter –
This Pensacola class is for the student who has never taken a workshop and for the student who has taken many workshops. Class emphasis will be achieving powerful underpaintings with spiritual energy and mystery combined with compositions connected to the pictorial world.
The resultant paintings will connect both worlds—spiritual and pictorial. The images will speak of your voice.
Mixed Media Smorgasbord – $575
Joan’s class will be a ball-of-fire, fun workshop! She will address how to be selective with all the options on the table (in the studio). You will explore new things and try new combinations, pairing down to the final choices. Joan’s classes in Pensacola always bring fresh ideas to splash onto the canvas! She teaches in such a creative and playful way that you can’t miss coming home with some really neat work.
Join us as we dive into the wonderful world of abstract art, learning how to suggest rather than delineate. You will learn how to work intuitively without even realizing it. She will show us how to charm our way thru our “starts” using shapes, line, and color…all while incorporating the neutrals for which she is so famous.
