New Workshops for Spring

I will be offering online classes once again starting this spring on my network The Natural Surface I will be announcing more classes as I get them organized!

Natural Dyeing Color Wheel Workshop

If you wanted to learn how to make a color wheel with natural dyes then you will want to take this eClass!

Mad about Madder eClass
I am also reoffering my Madder Root eClass this spring, this time I've expanded what students will be doing in this class.

Mixed Media Painting Workshop

Spend the afternoon trying a variety of techniques using paint!
In this workshop students will learn how to combine various wet materials to create a painting. Students will work with acrylics, water color media, emulsions, opaque pens, papers, etc.   This is a great opportunity to try some new techniques and media without having to committ to a six week class!

The class will be held Fisher Art Center in Marshalltown, IA
