Join us as we host Finnabair for three exciting new classes this August.

Tuesday, August 1st @ 1pm

Step into the moonlight with Finn while you create a double canvas. An almost unreal, beautiful double canvas collage based on textures, clusters of elements, dark background and non-conventional painting!
Have you ever dreamed about making your own mixed-media landscape collage? During this class you can try it – step-by-step. We will build all the layers and textures to build our small towns and villages out of chipboard elements, create the look of moonlight and stars on the night sky… all that getting a lot of useful tips and inspirational techniques which you can apply to many future projects! We will be using a range of products from my Art Basics, Art Extravagance and Art alchemy lines including gesso, pastes, gels and wax – our main colour substrate in this project! This project is not only a great way to jump into world of mixed-media but also create a blog, breathtaking statement piece for your home or studio.
All the elements, paints and mediums are provided – this project is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.

 

Wednesday, August 2nd @ 9am

Altered denim journal with a lot of amazing shine, texture and detail. This class is a great way to get familiar with a wide range of mixed-media products including Clear Gesso, gels, and all the beautiful mediums which give you this eye-catching, beautiful shine: Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic Paints and Metallique Waxes. Together we will build all the composition explaining all the products used, giving a lot of useful tips and ideas and working with a range of colour choices to make each person in the room happy.
All the techniques presented in this class can be easily used on many other projects such as home decor and altered objects or journal pages.
All the elements, paints and mediums are provided – this project is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.

Wednesday, August 2nd @ 3pm

There is not a single touch of paint on this project – this large, beautiful collage on canvas is all about the rust, paste and metallic look! What a great way to try many techniques at once: building some truly dimensional, intriguing composition, using two amazing and unique Art Extravagance sets: Rust Paste and Patina Paste and finally finish it all with really beautiful (and user-friendly!) Metallique Waxes.
Poetry of Patina is an amazing, statement canvas with a great range of innovative products on basis of some good mixed-media techniques – which can be easily used on many other projects such as home decor and altered objects or journal pages.
All the elements, paints and mediums are provided – this project is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.
