Workshop | Serenity Bundles with Kelly Kilmer
Date: Sunday, June 11th 2017
Time: 9:30 – 4:00 (6hours with a half hour lunch break)
Class Fee: $150
In this extensive, (paint covered) hands-on workshop, you will create luscious, rich, and colorful painted pages. You will learn how to layer, scrub, and create soulful and unique to you pages that can be used for a variety of art projects. You will learn color, design, composition, collage and much, much more in this class. You will transform your painted papers into expressive, hand bound books.
Be prepared to get messy so bring your apron, a desire to learn and explore and your sense of humor. I guarantee that a good time will be had by all as we explore paint and paper! This class is actually MULTIPLE classes in one! You will be learning techniques that apply to a variety of art forms (think art journaling, collage, etc...) as you create layered, unique pages. You will also be creating at least two different books:
Supply list: a full pack of regular BABY WIPES, a journal (I will have paper for you and we will be making a journal but sometimes it is fun to work back and forth between projects), an apron, scissors, a selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this class description when choosing your images), bone folder, cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR an old rag, permanent black ink pad (if you have one), 1" brush to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes) and a few small detail brushes, a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer), roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)
A Note from Kelly:
My workshops aim to teach a variety of NEW ideas involving collage, creative processing,
self-expression, composition, design, layering, painting and much, much more. My workshops are always process-based learning while creating a unique product. I am well known for not traveling light and bring a large variety of supplies including (but not limited to) collage material, rubber stamps, stencils, pens, markers, tape and more.
Beginners to advanced students are welcome in ALL of the classes. The class fee includes a vast array of mediums and materials to complete the necessary project. It is well known that I do not travel light to any of my classes.
I DO NOT travel light to my classes at all !!!
I will be bringing and supplying for the class such things as:
• all materials necessary to complete the project (handmade paper, decorative paper, board, glue, etc...) bookbinding supplies (thread, awl, needles)
• rubber stamps, ink pads
• decorative tape, collage ephemera and other goodies
• pens and markers
