Class Description:

Spend the day creating this beautiful grid of textured squares in YOUR choice of decorator colors. Gail will have you combining a selection of magazine images and assorted textured papers which you will cut, paste, and alter in a five step process. This workshop will offer you a new collage style. The Nevr-Dull is a resist technique that lets you alter magazine colors and images. Perfect for people who can’t draw! The collage tiles will be attached to an 8x10 or a 12x12 stretched wrap around canvas (your choice). So come join us for this great workshop and create your very own masterpiece, ready to display on your wall when you arrive home. The photos in our class description don’t capture the level of detail and texture in the artwork. We have samples in the shop of Gail’s art.

A Note from the Queen: I have known Gail for many years and I adore her, absolutely love her work and she is a fantastic  teacher. She has a very Zen approach to life and as she says “I bend like the willow” Queen’s never make bargains……but I’m not above begging! I pestered Gail so much about coming back to teach at The Queen’s Ink, that she had no other option but to say yes! These are two workshops  (and my favorites) that you won’t want to miss.  Gail’s Technique is so adaptable you can apply it to any mixed media style.…Art Journaling, Collage, card making, etc., All skill  levels are welcome from the novice to the experienced artist.
