Our first project will be four small serape paintings of the sacred elements, Earth, Sky, Fire, and Sea – with a watercolor media technique that guarantees impressive results with evocative symbolism.
We move on to our next lessons where you will learn an ancient Eastern painting style that transforms simple stripes into dimensional bands of Southwestern hues that glow on paper or on canvas! I wills bot methods.
You will explore the way a simple square can end up looking like a priceless Pendleton blanket pattern with the addition of just two small stencil shapes.
We will explore stamping, and stencil-making and much more.
