Saturday: Flaming Heart – collage triptych
Inspiring harmony between the negative space, texture, sprays and splatters – all that can fit on one project which will be the journey into the world of dimension and colour. “Flaming Heart” is a great chance to clean your head and keep your hands busy… simply follow your intuition and enjoy the process of building layers, glueing, spraying and painting.
This class is not only the chance to try a bit different way of composing and organising your project but also finding a way of using the supplies we all have somewhere close in our reach: in our studios, kitchens, garages, gardens… with the presented techniques, all these options are possible…and there is a high chance you will never throw away a piece of plastic, metal or fabric away!
During this full day class, we will build the project together from the bottom to the top – I will do my best to break the process into easy to follow steps. We will try different art mediums from all of my Lines including White Heavy Gesso, Modeling Paste or Heavy Body Gel, White Sand Texture Paste, new Art Alchemy Metallique Paints, Mica Powders, Micro Beads and Art Stones and more! You will have a wide choice of finishing possibilities and colours to choose – we will use coloured sprays but also water-soluble crayons, acrylic paints, and mica powders.
All the techniques can be easily used on many other projects such as home decor and altered objects or journal pages. The project is suitable both for advanced and beginning students.
Class time: full day – about 7-8h
Sunday Morning: Poetry of Patina - collage on canvas
There is not a single touch of paint on this project - this large, beautiful collage on canvas is all about the rust, paint 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.

Sunday Afternoon: Rust Painted - Large collage on canvas with tons of beautiful details, layers, rust and sparkle.
During this class you will not only try building, rich, dimensional composition but also take the advantage of the negative space which will help your composition really catch the eye. Step-by-step we are going to build all the layers using a great selection of elements and embellishments and we will try different art mediums: Art Basics, Art Alchemy, Art Ingredients and more - selection of gels, gesso, acrylic paints and really unique effect of Rust Paste. Rust Painted may be done in a wide range of colours and it may be easily turned into composition with a small photo. All the techniques can be easily used on many other projects such as home decor and altered objects or journal pages.
