It's been a busy few weeks at The Little White Studio, Karen and I are eagerly preparing for our Open Studio Event this coming Friday & Saturday, as well as having another One to One Tuition Session (photos to follow in a later post), and also this morning, a fun Mixed Media Workshop with some young ladies from the local Community College.
Creating a collage on Canvas we prepared the background layers with ephemera and lots of glorious colourful acrylic paints, Indian inks and plenty of sparkle thrown in for good measure!
The girls selected a quirky image, butterfly wings and a slogan and then set about positioning them on their canvas, adding vintage lace and buttons for accent pieces.
Flourishes and notions were then stamped on the canvas for more texture, and then finishing off by painting the edges and adding their own signatures.
It was a fun, colourful workshop, which is reflected in their finished pieces, as you will see! If you are interested in attending a similar Collage & Paint Workshop please contact Karen or I by email to discuss further, we will be holding more of this type of workshop in early January 2013.
Above are the girls with their finished work, and below are a close up of some of the finished designs... all very individual as you will see...
The first one above is what I worked on as I taught the workshop, to give the Students a theme to follow and help them interpret it into their own work, below are some of the Students finished pieces... gorgeous aren't they!!
Seeing each Students finished work is always so exciting and such an enjoyable part of the workshops for Karen and I. Don't forget, we are having an Open Studio this coming week; Friday 2nd & Saturday 3rd November from 10am till 12noon, (see our post below from 20th September for all Open Studio details, we'd love to see you there and show you around!
