Julie Bergmann's workshop:

Introducing traditional fine art mediums and materials to craft style artists. Julie invites you to experiment with Tri-Art Acrylics & Shiva Artist’s Paintstiks Oil Paints to achieve effects not obtainable with entry level or bargain priced materials. Participants will create a figure portrait on a 10" x 10" maple panel, transferring the figure template with Richeson Transfer Paper & graphite art pencils. Mixed media elements will be applied to create a unique piece.

The cap on these workshops is 50, and to date they are now all over 60% full! Only 17 more days to go!  To register, go to this LINK.

This foray into the wild and crazy crafters world should be a ton of fun, so much pretty, and so much inspiration!  As a primarily abstract painter, I find the process of creating workshops that have a very specific focus is a terrific way to bring a bit more discipline to my usually very loose style.  I appreciate the blend of these two not-so-different art worlds.
