Scenes from our workshops in Long Beach (Part 2)

Saturday, July 30th, "Playful Painting On Canvas"
During this 3-hour afternoon workshop we narrowed the width of our canvases and created 2 painting environments.  As always, our students amazed us with their unique painting styles.  The other point that fascinates us is that, in every single workshop, the two canvases develop their own unique "personalities".
Take a look:
Students move to different "spots" on the canvas to paint.
We ask the students to work in areas they have not painted into previously at first,
and we switch who they are positioned near to change up the style of the painting!

Below are details from the canvases:

many hands make the canvas rich and textural!

Students hold up one of the finished canvases, before it 
gets cut into sections!

Here are the two finished canvases.
Students took 2 sections from EACH painted canvas.
Imagine all the possibilities that could be created from these beautiful 
painted canvases!

A note to our workshop students:  We LOVE to see what you create with your canvas sections!
Please share photos of your finished items with us!

Scenes From Our Workshops in Long Beach (Part 1)

"Musical Chairs:  A Painted Canvas Adventure"
Our day-long workshop in Long Beach CA was small, but mighty!  Our students created 2 wonderfully colorful canvases, which were subsequently divided into smaller sections.  Since we have learned through experience that people fall in love with certain areas (those boyfriends) we turn the sections face-down, mix them up, and each student selects the pieces.
After the canvas section are selected the group settles into the 2nd phase of the workshop:  working into the painted canvas with markers, cutting shapes and sections, and creating amazing cards, journal covers, and ATCs from their customized canvas.  The results were amazing!  Take a look:
students in the initial stages of painting the gessoed canvas..

the canvas evolves...

a second canvas, with a distinct personality!

students gather around a work table to share markers, glue,
and stories

creating postcards and memories

what will this be?

A few of the finished postcards, stamped, and ready to be mailed to their makers
as a memory of the day we shared!
