I love to take classes to expand my horizon on a particular technique. I do have about 4 classes coming up in the next month or so I wanted to share with you all.
Paulette Insall is an artist whose work I stumbled across one day and instantly loved! Here, see for yourself in this series of painting/mixed media videos:
Part One: The Background:
Part Two: Mixed Media Elements added
Part Three: The Face is added:
I want to learn how Paulette paints her backgrounds and her faces, so I am taking both her classes to learn these techniques from her.
Also, I am signed up for a class with the Pixeladies, whose work I also admire and LOVE! I love visiting their work studio, Deb and Kris are kindred spirits! Go check out their website, they do fabulous work and I especially love their purse patterns. Anyway, they are teaching a crazy piecing class. Shhh…. I already know how to piece this, but I am taking the class to just have fun, laugh, and soak up their creativity!! LOL!
The last class I am taking is another beading class- a crochet beaded rope. Check out the class picture:
I never would have guessed the rope pictured was not beaded with a peyote or other stitch… instead it was crocheted using a technique that hides the thread you are using. Anyway, I am looking forward to learning how to make the rope.
