Using text as texture is a great way of building a foundation for artistic backgrounds. Whether it be for collage, watercolor, or acrylic painting, text can also be a great focal point. In this workshop you will use color blocking and a grid layout as your surface design. Patti will guide you through an array of techniques and exercises using papers, letters, ephemera, stencils, alphabets & numbers, and inks & paints. You will be able to pick and choose from the many techniques, as to what you want to "Text", as well as having plenty of room to add your own spin on this artful conversation.
You will create an amazing vignette on an 11 x 14 inch birch panel that will be provided as part of the workshop.
