Flowing Abstractions

Flowing Abstractions

Free Flow Abstractions  Jackie Hefty

Some may think of this as child's play, going with the flow, sink art or akin to suminagashi (oriental marbling).  Flowing colors; loose, natural, and/or organic create the foundation for your personal interpretation of using mixed media. Sumi ink, walnut ink, watercolors, acrylic inks and water, what could be more fun. Add a variety of new or familiar textures and techniques to make it your own.  You will be encouraged to explore additional combinations and alterations throughout the workshop. These explorations will provide you with several unique and individual abstract works along with opportunities to selectively cut & paste pieces together. Fri May 11, 11 - 4:30  $85/$15 materials
