FEBRUARY 1 & 2, 2020

Instructor:  Lisa Thorpe

We all need a little extra help sometimes, someone in our corner to boost our confidence, our spirit or even our defiance!  So why not make your own custom icon, your own imaginary saint or spirit guide?  Perhaps you need your very own Patron Saint of Serenity, or how about the Guardian Angel for the Earth, or maybe you need a Spirit Guide to Adventure?  Whatever kind of guide you need you can express yourself through this two-day mixed media workshop.  Your Saint can be serious or silly, meditative or magical it’s up to you!  I will provide a mix female faces, both animal and human to choose from as well as hand and basic body patterns so you don’t need to worry about your drawing skills at all.

Lisa will demonstrate how to design your Guardian Angel using the printed images and decorative papers she provides.  This collage technique is at once flexible, forgiving and fun. This workshop is great for beginners who want to explore mixed media art more and practiced artist who want to express themselves in a new way.  Everyone will go home with a custom “icon” created on an 11×14 canvas panel.  All materials are provided, but you mixed media artists out there with a big stash of art papers should bring them along – this might just be the workshop you bought them for!
