at Rene’s Studio
June 28, 29 / 10am-3pm
So you’ve marbled and have a stack of amazingly beautiful papers — but what to do now? This workshop takes you through the options for turning your marbling into beautiful works of art.
■ Paint over your marbled patterns, using mixed media or acrylic ground with your watercolor. Touch up paintings you’ve marbled to make them “sing”! ■ Create a collage, making a pattern using imagery and marbling that you love. ■ Collage marbled deli papers onto your paintings. ■ Cover a journal. Rene will show examples and offer ideas.
Rene will work with each of you one-on-one to find solutions and discover possibilities.
Some materials provided.
