Art and Soul in Portland Blog Hop

I will be teaching three workshops in Portland, OR in September. If you are not familiar with this venue I encourage you to take a look and check out all the workshops available. Also check the blogs of a few of the other artists that will be teaching, they're listed below. Art and Soul is a week long creation fest. You live, work and breathe creativity for up to a week. It's great because you can stay in the hotel and take as many workshops from as many instructors as you like and you only have to get there once. What could be more fun!

This is the class to begin your wonderful journey into textures. We'll explore some fantastic tips and tricks to jump start textured surfaces that you will be irresistible to touch. These can be a starting point for collage, transfers, layers or they can be completed art work in themselves. 
You may wish to take this class in conjunction with the Texture class and you can build on top of your surfaces. It may also be taken independently. We will learn many transfer techniques, including creating layers with transparencies and how to then leverage those images into a new transfer. You will be amazed at the endless possibilities. I hope to see you in this class.
The third class I am teaching is a fun filled class for all you collage fanatics like me. I'll share all my adhesion and paper creation methods with you. We will learn how to incorporate transfers and textures into collage. Check it out and learn some new tricks.

Now take a look at just a few of the other fantastic artists that will be teaching. Sign up for a whole week of classes and share with so many others. I look forward to making lots of new friends in Portland.
