Making Monotypes with Pastels and Metallic Crayons
Instructor Jerry Fenter
Saturday and Sunday February 27th and 28th 2010
The Dalles Art Center
Learn to make wonderful one of a kind prints using crayons and pastels by coming to a 2 day workshop at The Dalles Art Center. The workshop will be limited to eight people and the cost is $80 for the workshop, with a one time $10 supply charge. Jerry will bring paper for printing, crayons and some pastels. (However, if you have any old pastel sets, crayons, etc. around your house please bring them to share with others.)
We will be printing on a copper sheet, heated with an iron, so dress for mess. Bring some drawing paper to sketch ideas, pencils and a roll of paper towels. You must come both days. This is a crazy process! Fun too! SIGN UP AND PAY BEFORE WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 24TH AT THE ART CENTER OR USE A CREDIT CARD BY PHONE. THE TOTAL IS $90.00.
THIS PROCESS IS TOTALLY FUN!
This is going to be an exciting week. The Olympics, Valentines Day, a three day weekend and I’m going to finally get back in the studio and do some work. I’m hoping to get a full class for Making Monotypes. This is such a fun process, crazy, wild and it takes absolutely no experience in art. I’ve put three small pieces I did using this process on this post. They were all done especially for a past Day of the Dead show I did with my artist friend Sandy Visse so they have a Mexican feel. You can create abstracts, landscapes, portraits and anything else you have hidden deep in your creative brain. So sign up ASAP. It’s going to be a fun event.
I was so sorry to read that Laura Russo died last week. This is a huge loss to the Portland arts community and to all of her friends and customers. She has supported the arts in the Portland area for many many years and she will be missed. The gallery will continue in good hands.
Don’t forget to send out your Valentines. Happy Valentines Day.
