Zentangle Basics

The basic class introduces you to the Zentangle method of drawing which lets you create original art. The Zentangle drawing method is a fun and easy process to learn. Through structured repetitive patterns called tangles you can create beautiful one of a kind art. This process is known to promote mindfulness, boost confidence, and creativity. Drawing is a great way to reduce stress. Learning the Zentangle method can liberate those sit and wait moments and turn them into artistic expression time.

Polymer Clay

Polymer Clay is an art medium that is known for its versatility, pliability and simplicity to work with. It is an oven bake modeling material composed of polymers, resins, coloring agents and fillers. Not a natural clay, it is man-made from a plastic, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base.

Polymer clay is used by artists and hobbyists ranging from children to professional artists and movie makers. It stays continually soft and can be baked in a home oven, retaining its color and size. It is available in many colors, including metallics, glow-in-the-dark and "stone." It can be used to simulate many materials: stone, semi-precious stones, porcelain, wood, and glass.

  Printmaking

Printmaking originated in China after paper was invented around AD 105. Relief printing appeared in Europe in the 15th Century, when the process of paper making was imported from the East.

Woodcuts are the oldest method of printmaking. They were first developed in China in the 9th Century. European examples date from the 14th Century. It is called a relief process because the lines and surfaces to which the ink adheres are higher than the parts that are not printed.

Linoleum cut is a relief print carved into linoleum rather than wood. Linoleum is composed of burlap coated with linoxyn; polymerized oil mixed with ground cork and pigments. The best grade, battleship linoleum, is usually brown or gray. Linoleum is more easily cut than wood and lighter weight tools are now made and sold for this process.

 

CYANOTYPE


Cyanotypes use a solution of iron compounds. The basic cyanotype recipe has not changed very much since Sir John Herschel introduced it in 1842. However, some advances have been made by Mike Ware in what is referred to as the New cyanotype process. Cyanotype Prints are made by by placing your negative (to reproduce a photograph) or object (to make a photogram) in contact with your coated paper or fabric.


  Acrylic Pour

Early experimentation with acrylic paint in artistic contexts began in the first half of the 20th century. ... One notable attendee of this workshop was Jackson Pollock, who went on to use synthetic gloss enamel paints for his dripping and pouring techniques.

Acrylic pouring is a painting technique where acrylic paint is mixed with some type of pouring medium and then poured onto a surface in a variety ways. Sometimes colors are poured directly from individual cups, and other times multiple colors are combined into one cup and poured together.
