About the Workshop:
If you are hesitant to paint abstracts, and want to
explore more mediums, this is the workshop for you. The art of wire drawing {Karen’s
new favorite
technique} will not only loosen you up but will improve your drawing skills at the same
time. We will be
creating small abstracts using watercolor, collage and markers. Acrylics will be used to
create paintings
influenced by Gustav Klimt. Amazing colors and forms are created with this method
using acrylics and a credit card! Come ready to explore new techniques and take your
paintings to the next level with Karen!
