BEGINNING AND END OF "THE BEGINNING"!

 In my workshop "In the Beginning" you Start with this......

and end with this!
And we have a whole lot of fun in between!! I finished up putting this workshop together yesterday and was so surprised to look at the whole process!! It was a challenge for me to work with only 3 paint colors and limited other media and supplies!! As Artists we get into trying this and that and the other and soon forget the basics. Creating this workshop helped me remember where I started and appreciate how I got where I am today!

BACK TO THE BASICS

I'm starting the process of putting my new workshop "IN THE BEGINNING" together and I LOVE IT!! I'm having to go back to the basics and that is a place I have not been in many years! I have been using a palette of all kinds of colors and all kinds of brands and all kinds of "helpers" and all kinds of all kinds!! In this workshop I am teaching the basics of mixed media, mostly acrylics and going to teach my students how to paint papers with limited materials. I don't want anyone buying a lot of materials that they will be stuck with if they find this is not for them.
Besides, back to the basics is healthy! Right!!
I'm up for the challenge and I can't wait to see what I come up with!!
