Love Story
A Hand-Painted Altered Book / ONE DAY

Your love and appreciation for a companion, a child, a sibling, a friend, is told through a series of removable had-painted paper letters and postcards that make up an illustrated and enduring keepsake book. We will use a gessoed children’s board book as a base for adhering hand-folded and commercial envelopes that will open to reveal hand-painted stationery papers, postcards, and shipping tags. You will write a story through a series of letters that can be pulled from their own envelopes, giving the reader a sensation of reading someone else's mail.

Learn to create hand-painted papers through techniques from Elizabeth’s book Painted Paper Art Workshop that will serve as the raw material for this book.

Flora and Fauna
Mini Collage Class / 8x8 / ONE DAY /

In this one-day workshop, you will learn how to create a painterly collage by adhering torn tidbits of paper over the top of an acrylic underpainting. Please bring a reference photo of a simple song bird or simple floral with a colorful background. Suggestions are Cardinals, Bluebirds, Robins, Gold Finches, Painted Bunting, Zebra Finch and daisies, lilies, roses, or wildflowers. These simple flora and fauna offer bright colors and shapes that are easy to render in collage.

In addition to learning how to do a basic underpainting for collage, you will also learn how to tear paper to eliminate white edges and use paper pieces like brush strokes.
