Below are just a few examples of what we will be creating in this course:

With Annie Hamman we will arrive in Russia.
We will be working with Russian traditional costumes and patterns, including additional symbolic elements of story art, as we go along.
We will be creating beautiful Matryoshka dolls too!
With Katrina Koltes we will go to Italy!
We will travel back into the eighteenth century to a very special place where art is everywhere you look. From the narrow noisy streets to the huge piazza with towering domes, from the colorful flowered balconies to the arched bridges overlooking green canals dotted with gondolas… yes, we are talking about the magical city of Venice! We will discover the dramatic Venetian carnival costumes and extravagant masks which made Venice so world-famous and discover the history of expressive color and artistic creations. We will paint the portrait of an eighteenth century woman dressed extravagantly for a carnival dance, with mixed media incorporating beautiful collage, and hand-made paper.
For the next day we move further south down into the beautiful, sun-kissed countryside of Tuscany, where the beautiful colors of vineyards, olive trees and poppy fields warm your heart and awaken your creativity. We will paint a Tuscan countryside in acrylic using loose, thick brushstrokes and bright splashes of color.
Visit Ireland with Lora Murphy!
Visit Ireland with me and explore the use of encaustic paint to create a beautiful soulful painting of a figure in the gorgeous Irish landscape . You will be able to use either collage or paint your own figure and and I will show you how to do a transfer on to the wax surface . We will use greens and golds, russets and greys , to render a soft and misty landscape I grew up in Ireland , the land of mists , redheads and 40 shades of green so for the next class I will show you how to create a myriad of greens along with a lovely redheaded girl inspired by the art of Frederic William Burton
Lauren Rudolph we take us to Japan!
We are going to participate in tea ceremony with Japanese woman. The intention is to express presence, intention, ritual and connection.
For the next day we will design our own beautiful tea cup, in the traditional Japanese style.
With Emma Petitt we will go to Spain!
Our Inspiration will be Radha, is a milkmaid (gopi), the lover and the most represented companion of the Hindu god Krishna in the medieval era texts. Radha will be painted using acrylic paints on canvas. She will be surrounded by beautiful native forest and parrots. We will paint her hand with henna design.
For the next day adventure, we will be painting Peacock, national bird of India.
With Lucy Chen we will arrive in China!
Lucy will be teaching a variety of cold wax techniques, including layering, texture pressing, reduction technique, and more. We will be working on developing layers of interesting elements, texture, and creative history for our portrait of Chinese girl in Chinese outfit, Koi fish and Tangerines, inspired by the traditional Chinese paintings and the Chinese aesthetic.
Renata Loree will take us to Czech Republic!
We will visit the streets of an old town of Czesky Krumlof, and you will feel as if you just stepped through a time warp into another century. We will connect to a folk art that will make your heart dance to polka. My favorite Czech artist was Alphonse Mucha, an Art Nouveau painter. We will follow his elaborate design to create a beautiful Goddess Poster.
With Basia Zielinska we will travel to Poland!
We will get inspired by Our Lady and create (“write”as say Polish) our own icon. Flower fields, with Poppies, Cornflowers and Daisies, will be our next day destination!
We will learn how to create a lightly textured background suggesting light, creating your own floral arrangement, design observations, “Terracotta effect” technique, painting pearls and much more!
With Bianca Garcia we will travel to Mexico!
We will visit the colorful Mexico, traveling into the Aztec and maya ancestors world. Meeting their culture and the meanings of their Aztec symbols. Painting with oils all the beautiful colors and their majestic clothing patterns. Exploring the histories from this beautiful culture, we will meet to Iztaccíhuatl and Popocatépetl, knowing the tragic love story behind the very famous volcanos legend. You sure don’t want to miss it!
We will travel to Georgia, USA with Robynne Engel-Pirkle!
Exploring the beautiful North Georgia Mountains. Take a walk with me in the woods and and beautiful BlueRidge Mountains! We will use our imagination to create mixed media scenarios inspired by the local wildlife.
With Muriel Stegers we will go to Netherlands!
The first day there we will meet a woman in dutch historic clothes.
Her background will be made with collage of dutch delft blauw tiles. We will finish this painting with the crackle glaze layer and inka gold cream.
We will go to New York, USA with Robin Mead!
We will be exploring line and color, my 2 favorite things, using watercolor and/or acrylic and ink. My early memories of growing up on the north shore of Long Island, NY have inspired my ocean/beach seascapes, and although my technique is simple, the style packs a bold punch of color and joy. These pieces are fun and leave a lot open for your imagination.
I’m inviting you with me to visit Israel!
