New Workshop - guest artist Nat Kalbach



MARCH 27, 28 & 29TH
A year or so ago I was studying the new Stampendous rubber stamp catalog and saw 3 new lucious "texture" stamp sets.  I had to order them right away as they were(are!) intriguing.  They were created from designs by Nathalie Kalbach (who is known simply as Nat) of N*Studio.  If you are unfamiliar with Nat, visit her blog/website N*Studio.  In addition to being an amazing mixed-media artist, she is a Liquitex Ambassador, organizer of Creative Jump Start, stencil designer for Stencil Girl, & stamp designer for Stampendous.

And sooooo.....  she is going to teach these 3 amazing mixed media classes...  check it out!

Friday, MARCH 27
 4 PM to 8 PM

In this monoprinting class you will explore the possibilities of making your own personal mark in your artwork by creating wonderful prints with different tools, stamps, stencils & techniques.  

Learn how to create your own patterned paper which can later be used in art journals, collages, mixed media canvases and all other kinds of paper art.  You will need a Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plate (available at My Heart's Fancy if you need one).  Whether you are a new or seasoned monoprinter, this is a great class for you!

Art Journaling
10 AM to 5:30
(with lunch break)

It starts the moment you sit down - an experience that is distinctly art journaling. A quick exhilaration, a sense of control, the art media's surprising responsiveness as if it were simply an extension of you. 

 There is a word for this creative experience: Artvergnugen!  Artvergnugen is what makes your journal a piece of art.  

Join Nathalie for a one-day workshop and play with different art media and supplies.  Learn techniques, tips and tricks to take your art journaling further and turn it into Artvergnugen!

Mixed Media Collage
10 AM to 5:30 PM
(with lunch break)

In this one-day workshop, Nathalie will share her favorite techniques to create background papers using paints, stencils and stamps.    Layered up, it will turn into a fun Mixed Media Collage.  Create a whimsical or abstract focal point, depending on your taste.  

Nat will share her fun and easy peasy collage techniques, talk a bit about composition and make a sticky business turn into a creative new passion for you.

I am really looking forward to this group of workshops.  Nat brings a whole new style to mixed media and I can't wait to learn a whole new way of creating!
