Jodi Ohl Mixed Media Workshop this weekend at Random Arts

March 7-9 at Random Arts, 481 Louisiana Avenue in Saluda NC: Jodi Ohl teaches 3 special workshops this weekend:

March 7, 1 PM - 4 PM    Angelic Inspirations   Summon your Guardian Angel, your muse, you most trusted source of inspiration during this paint and collage mini class. Using limited color palettes, texture, and simple yet layered designs, participants will create 2 6x12 "Angelic Inspiration" works during this 3 hour session. Come play and have fun and walk away with great pieces to keep or give as inspirational gifts to those you love. $65 fee.
March 8, 10 AM - 4 PM    Podabilities   Re-discover your inner child with doodles and playful finger painting as you layer your way to abstract windows to our world of "Pods-Abilities". Create colorful abstracts that are a touch on the side of whimsical, full of playful marks (you will even make own stamps and stencils), and truly deep layers of fun scribbles, doodles, and little windows of fun. This is a full day of class where you will explore many painting techniques that you can carry forward in a variety of ways, not just for this amazing project. Some painting knowledge helpful but more important, your willingness to explore and let go of what you 'know' and discover a whole new world of mixed media art and fun. $110 fee.
March 9, 10 AM - 4 PM  Texturize This Live!    Are you ready to be immersed in color and luscious texture, or looking for something new to add to your work?  Are you willing to let go, experiment and be open to possibilities, even happy accidents?   You'll dive into a world of shimmering color, tantalizing texture and mysterious layers during this full day of experimenting on a surface that will make your paintings sing with intensity. Be a painterly scientist as you uncover ways to work with contemporary abstract compositions that employ exciting textural designs and layers.  By manipulating the surface with heat, glazes and 3D mediums, you will be creating work that is truly unique and fascinating. Your work will amaze everyone. $110 fee.
