Pretty Pigments Online Class
~ A Self Paced Online Class ~
Greetings from the Prairie!!!
I've been playing with earth pigments, ochers, and clays since I was a little girl, painting every piece of fabric, leather, paper, even bones, with the various colors of the earth that I found in my parents garden, or in the creek behind their house. And now I get to share this passion for the Earth's colors with you!
In this Online Class you will receive Four Assignments.
Each Assignment will be made up of four components:
•And finally a Challenge to instill growth.
All videos are downloadable so that you will have them for life.
The instructions are also downloadable as a PDF, so that you will have them for life.
There will be a special bonus lesson at the end of this class.
In this online class I will show you how to combine clay, ochers, and pigments with mixed mediums to create beautiful one-of-a-king art cloth and papers.
You will be encouraged to explore your world for found color and materials to color your cloth and papers in such a way as to make them unique to you alone!
You will soon discover that I do not give projects, like many classes today do.
Instead I give assignments.
Projects are finite.
Assignments are a life long quest of learning, exploring, experimenting, and finally growth. I see assignments as a valuable process to my studio practice, and I am very excited to share my process with you!
