Thank Color play, fashion illustrative portraits and florals

This 2 day workshop is for all levels from dreamers to experienced creatives. We will be playing with acrylic, pastel and charcoal to use shading and bold color. Mel will be talking about how she finds inspiration as well as discuss how she found her way to being a self taught artist.

Day 1- 9am -noon In this unique workshop Mel will supply Poster Size images of her work in a coloring book type format that you will add your own touches to play on as well as a beginning image to finish shading with charcoal and paint. These exercises will take the anxiety of ‘How do I do this?” to “I am able to create what I imagine” This is to get you comfortable and hopefully messy (wear suitable clothing)

1:00-4:30 Prep canvas, start background and outline. You will start a portrait with a few images to choose from.

Throughout the workshop Mel will give individual cheer leading and instruction on progress. Students are welcome to ask questions about their own work or just tell your story. We are wanting this workshop to be a personal journey that is started in this incredible group of new friends and your own personal creative circle.

Day 2: 9am-11am An exciting morning with Bari J Ackerman. Bari has been designing floral surfaces since 2009. Her work is well known within the fabric industry and is liscensed to Art Gallery fabrics. You can also find her art in Anthropologie and more in rugs with Loloi Rugs, on murals and wallpaper for Murals Your Way and Wallternatives and many more home decor, paper and lifestyle products.
