Mini Workshop with Barb Rios – Getting Creative with your Lemons

May 28 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

 GETTING CREATIVE WITH YOUR “LEMONS”

Mini Workshop by Barbara Rios. Turn your disappointments into an opportunity to have FUN! Saturday, May 28, 10am – 3pm (extended time), Wickham Community Center, bring a lunch!

Not only did your painting not turn out to be a masterpiece, but look at the money you wasted on expensive materials!  Don’t let this stifle the “child” in you to play, experiment and be creative. What you perceive as a failure can be repurposed today or 10 years from now. Use the back, add other materials, throw it in the tub, cut it up,  gesso over it, or keep to show how far you have advanced. How else do you expect to learn and finally create a something YOU are proud of?

If you are a watercolor purist, your head may spin at all the materials that can be used to create “something [that] wasn’t before”.  Think like a child who, as we know, has absolutely no thought of cost!

Bring some of your “non Masterpieces” to work on, exchange them with someone who sees promise. or to get the opinions of other artists.  You are encouraged to bring materials with which to experiment:  scissors, acrylics, tissue paper, crayons, markers, scrap cloth, pastels, templates, saran wrap, found objects, Mr. Clean pads, rollers, magazine cutouts, WHATEVER you think will inspire you!  Barbara will provide many materials for your experimentation, but a small contribution would be appreciated. 

Examples of some of Barbara’s recreated artwork will be shown, hopefully as inspiration.

To register, please send email to Laurie at lbgriffi@att.net.  Attendance is limited to 30.  If something comes up and you are not able to attend please send Laurie an email and let us know so someone else can take your slot.
