COMING IN JUNE! Registration & more information available in mid-May
I zipped home and thinned out my peaches according to Kate’s instructions. Thanks Kate!
Then I zipped inside read my comments from yesterday’s blog post and gasped when I read Michele’s comment about the class name. “Oh My Gouache!” Thanks Michele! It’s fabulous and I love it. I knew if I waited long enough the name would arrive via special delivery into my nutcracker. Once again DFLA peeps to the rescue!
The new class is going to be very much like SKETCHBOOKERY in that it’s really about the art of making & keeping a sketchbook. This is the special gouache edition.
I started experimenting with gouache in my sketchbook back in 2013. It’s a fantastic medium and produces velvety rich pages. I’m crazy about it and think you will be too once you get your sketchbook made, your palette prepared, and your brushes loaded. I’ve got a nifty new bookbinding stitch to teach along with a long stitch alternative for those who need something easier. 4-5 weeks of unbridled OMG sketchbookery! The pages in the photo above are similar, but not identical to the ones we’ll be making in class. Plus…of course, I have plenty of other brand new tricks up my sleeve. I think you’ll be pleased. As noted above, more specifics will be coming in a couple of weeks. I’ve got about a few more weeks of videotaping & class blog building to go. Due to my day job as a schoolmarm I’m moving at a snail’s pace, but I anticipate registration to open somewhere in the next few weeks and class to get underway in mid-June. Give me a couple of weeks and I’ll be able to nail down the dates.
See you soon!
