NEW! Spontaneous Intent Workshop with Mary Beth Shaw
Join Mary Beth Shaw for her Spontaneous Intent Workshop at Ephemera Paducah in 2020! In this class, we will explore tons of spontaneous techniques that focus on printmaking, surface design, collage, and painting – all with the intent to make interesting component parts for our art journal and other mixed media projects.
In our first half-day, we will make a Collagraph plate and experiment with several types of printmaking to create beautiful painted papers. We will make marks, fling paint, tear paper and then pull it all together in beautifully layered journal spreads.
Expect to learn specific ways to design a layout, ramp up the visual interest and fully integrate the page. We will use acrylic and watercolor products including paint, ink, texture medium, pencils, markers, and pastels. Any level of student is welcome and prior students will find lots of new techniques to expand their mixed media repertoire
Mary Beth will bring all the acrylic and watercolor paints, mediums, gessos and other supplies to make Collagraph plates. She will furnish crayons, markers, inks, papers, stamps, stencils and collage items.
