Demos in Gardens with a side of acrylic and collage

Recent Demos from my local classes and workshops  Create Irvine is coming up next week! There is still time to sign up....or you can sign up for Create Chicago or New Jersey! I'll be flying and teaching all summer long....New Zealand...New Jersey....Chicago....



 This journal demo was created at Buena Creek Gardens. I used a Tomboy black pen to draw with, then I used water on a brush to spread the black ink. Colored pencils were added on top.


 Journal post from San Diego Botanic Garden. I gave a one day workshop a week ago. I'll teach again in the Fall.  We used collage pages from an old atlas I found in a San Diego Thrift store with my sister.

 and this painting was created at my Fallbrook School of the Arts class. Collage papers from that same Atlas were glued down first with a layer of Gesso over it. Watercolor was painted on after the gesso dried. 
 Here's a bit from a demo I did yesterday in my Escondido Adult Ed Mixed Media class. We made shiny collage papers from art tissue. Fall Classes will go up online mid August
and.....this is an acrylic and charcoal painting from my Palomar college class. I teach a semester course in Acrylic and Watercolor. Fall semester starts August 24!

Your creativity along with your friend Jane's never ceases to amaze me. I have taken classes with her twice and you once. But I'm taking another class with you at Create Chicago - so we will be square. Would not want to show favoritism between my two favorite artists. :) Be careful in New Zealand.
