Random Arts Workshops and Events

August 8  -  Creating with Color Pencils with Helen Shafer Garcia   Let your imagination take hold and play with colored pencils on unique black and red surfaces. Light colors will glow and textures pop when pencils glide over the surface. You'll learn about blending methods and layering colors. You start out with a collage prompt poem concept that will indicate the imagery. Drawing abilities are not required - this concept is about learning to see, blending colors and layering to create depth and saturation of color. Giving permission to yourself to create is the first step.  2 spaces remains. 10 AM till 4 PM,  $135.

August 9th  -  Crinkly Birds, Flora and Fauna with Helen Shafer Garcia    Reach into the sky and create Bird themed mixed media paintings on Masa paper and canvas. A special batik like technique with Masa rice paper will create wonderful textures and crevices for the paint to flow into. Draw and paint symbolic iconic birds, flora, and other great, joyful creatures with bold watercolor dropped -in color techniques. Play with colored pencils, ink lines and collage elements to further embellish your paintings. Discover how beautiful and bright watercolors can be with this special process. The watercolor paintings will be sealed with an acrylic varnish to protect the surface. Borders and embellishments will be added with acrylics.  10 AM - 4  PM,  $135.

August 10  -  Planed and Folded Wooden Book with Helen Shafer Garcia    There is something about the beauty of wood grain that we all find appealing.  The thin wood shapes that you will use have been planed by hand.

At least 5 techniques will be taught in this workshop including color pencil on wood, dropped- in watercolor, stenciling, batik-look paper process, and book binding techniques to stitch signatures sewn onto a canvas binding.   10 AM - 4  PM,  $135.
