Spread Your Numbered Wings and Fly Canvas - Anita HoustonFriday May 9, 2014 5:30- 9:30pm $45
Using the Techniques: Number/Letter Pictures; Stamping with Paint; Paint Resist with Dylusions
It's always interesting to take numbers or letters and make pictures out of them, but instead of doodling them out on a memo pad while talking on the phone, you can create a piece of Art to cherish for years to come using those same doodles. In this class, you will create a whimsical and fun piece of Art that has so much character. You will use paint and ink sprays on a 9x12 inch wood panel canvas, which adds to the interest as you can see the grain of the wood, giving the piece a textural quality like nothing else. Students Will Need: Scissors *Note: You will be using Dylusions Ink Sprays, so you might want to wear an apron.
