One week away, Yupo Play!

One week from today, on February 29th 2012, is the next Wednesday edition of the “Open Studio” classes I am holding here at my studio. We are going to go back to watercolors and explore creating art on Yupo paper a little more in depth. Yupo is a synthetic type of material (not a true “paper”) that resists absorbing paint. That means you can spend lots of time manipulating the paint on the smooth surface before your image dries. If you feel you’ve overworked your image or you just plain aren’t satisfied with it you can even “erase” your watercolor from the surface of you paper and start fresh.

It’s a fun, rather unpredictable, material to play with and explore. No wonder I like it so much – you can have some wonderful “happy accidents” with it and create awesome images you didn’t even know you were trying to create until they appear. 🙂

So be sure and sign up soon before all the spaces are taken for this fun afternoon! The session runs from noon until 2:30 p.m. The cost for the class is $30 and includes all the materials. If you’d like to pre-pay for three classes you can do so at a discounted rate of $75 for all three. Please  email (info@lynnemedsker.com) to reserve your place as class size is limited!

Future “Open Studio” classes include:

Wednesday, March 14th – “Wall Sculpture” part 1 – the beginning of a two-part class, we’ll use wood, metal and other materials to create an abstract wall sculpture. The second part of this class will be held on Wednesday, March 28th.

Saturday, March 24th – “Crreative Collage” – an encore of the February 1st class, you’ll design and create an 8×10 collage on a ready-to-hang wood panel. You can view images and a recap of that class by clicking here.

Wednesday, March 28th – “Wall Sculpture” part 2 – Continuing from the March 14th class we will complete the assembly and final details on our mixed media wall sculptures.

Wednesday, April 11th – “Art from Nature” celebrating Earth Day 2012 a little early (April 22nd is the date) we will create mixed media art that includes natural elements (rocks, wood, etc.) Feel free to bring your own “treasures” to include in your art!

Upcoming Classes! Part 1

I’ve been busy scheduling classes, workshops and fun for my fun-loving, art-exploring students, friends and (yes!) even YOU! I posted a reminder about the next “Open Studio” session this Wednesday, I’ve got several more of those scheduled – both on Wednesdays and a few Saturdays as well.  I’ll post the rest of the topics and dates in a few days. First I wanted to tell you about a workshop that we’ve scheduled that I am REALLY excited about! It’s something we’ve not done before, which is always fun for me. I’m hoping it will be something exciting for YOU too!
