This piece is inspired by the traditional art of batik, which uses wax to "protect" certain areas of a surface

to create a color blocking effect. It's mostly used in south Asia for creating lavish and intricate textile patterns.

However, this batik piece has a twist, since it incorporates whimsical elements like glitter and sticker gems on a

base of bright watercolor wash. This creates a colorful, shimmery and almost 3D effect that varies

depending on the angle it is viewed at.

textures and effects, as well as adding that "magic touch" with glitter and stick-on gems.

A Two-Part Series

Friday March 15th

6p-9p

and saturday march 16th

9a-4p


What’s an “Altered Book?” We start with an old book and create a new one by playing with paint,

pictures, glue, and a bit of self-reflection.

In this Friday night—all day Saturday workshop, we will create a finished book from start to finish!

We’ll explore possible themes for our books, choose one, and express our insights with a variety of

techniques involving art, writing, and talking (no previous experience necessary).

Themes we may explore: change in our lives, memories and looking toward the future, adventures, possibilities…

or bring your own idea!

Join us for an inspiring experience as we alter a book and discover new insights along the way!

All materials provided.

Bring your own lunch.

Optional: Bring images, poems, quotes, or small items that have meaning to you to incorporate into your book.

For many cultures, the moon was considered a deity and a symbol of fertility and feminine power.

For the Colombian Muisca culture, the name of the moon goddess was Chía, and she is the wife of Xué, the Sun God.

Watercolor is easy to use, and lends itself to create tiny details with more control.

Join us to paint a beautiful geometric rendering of Chía!

This piece is inspired by the exotic birds of Colombia. This country holds the world record in bird species,

and with good reason. Some of the birds that inhabit this territory are borderline surreal,

with unbelievable colorful plumage and exotic shapes. In this class, we’ll learn about different

watercolor and gouache techniques, as well as using an uncommon tool –

the gold paint marker – to create fun and interesting textures.
