Guest Artist - Nathalie Kalbach

Art in Translation
March 4-6, 2016
Nathalie Kalbach

I am very excited to announce the return of Nathalie Kalbach.  Nat taught a very wonderful trio of classes last year and they were one of the highlights of our guest artist line-up.

This year we wanted to bring you a weekend "retreat" style workshop.  When I asked her to think about the idea she responded very positively and went straight to work on it with "can do" gusto!

"ART RULES - Art in Translation" is the result.

Here's Nathalie's description of this class:

"Let's explore several master artists and get inspired by their artwork and techniques to create wonderful and unique art journal pages.Whether it be Andy Warhol's cheating technique or Rothko's amazing color combinations, there are many different Master Artists whose masterful skills can serve as a starting point for your own artwork.  Find out what you like and what works for you.  Learn about opacity and layering, colors, troubleshooting, mixing materials, making your own tools, creating backgrounds and patterns.  We will work with acrylic paints, inks, markers, wax bars and other paint media to create dimension and texture.  We will make the most of stencils, stamps, mono printing plates and generic tools to make our own mark.  Get ready to Rule Your Art Journal!"

NO ART JOURNALING EXPERIENCE NEEDED!  If you are new to art journaling, this is a class to help get you rolling.  If you have been art journaling for a while, this will help you reach a whole new level.  Come learn from one of my favorite teachers of all times.  Nat rocks art journaling and you will too!

What a fun Demo Day we had on Sunday.  In spite of having postponed it from Saturday to Sunday due to the weather, we had fun.  We missed you if you were unable to attend.  I know many were without power and some of you were stranded by tree debris.  But know that we were thinking of you, missing you, and praying for solutions if you were one of the many with ice issues.

Lisa created this really cute "treat" bag with dies and a stamp set from My Favorite Things.....
