Art on the Farm


Well I'm off to Denver very early tomorrow morning to go and visit my beautiful, talented friend pictured above,  Jeanne Oliver!  I can't wait to spend 4 whole days with "the girls"...Jen and Traci are going with me and my best friend Natasha just happens to live 40 minutes from Jeanne!! 

And speaking of Jeanne and Jen, I wanted to let all of you who live in the Chicagoland area know that these two wonderful girls will be teaching some amazing art classes at the next Na-Da Farm Sale in October...


Come spend some time on Anne Marie's lovely farm...




...do a little shopping and then attend an art class or two!  I will be :))

Jen will be teaching a reflections on the prairie mixed-media art class on Saturday morning, October 8th from 9am - 11am  {$38}


Here's a little about Jen's class:

Bring your coffee and join in on a two hour class where we will create a mixed-media mirrored art piece made from a magnifying glass using vintage botanical prints,typography, twine, paper, text, decoupage and the inspiration of the peaceful surroundings. It starts with a 15 minute prairie walk/meditation to gather inspiration. Suitable for all skill levels, each student will leave with a completed, unique art piece.

After Jen's class, Jeanne will be teaching two classes...




I took Jeanne's art class at the last Na-Da Sale and had so much fun!  I really look forward to taking the two new classes she will be offering!!
 
 
Here's a little about her classes:


Vintage Art Journal Class {12-2:30}


You will take a variety of vintage elements and create a beautiful and usable art/writing journal. You will start with a vintage book and alter it to include vintage elements that make it reflect your own personal style. Each journal will be full of vintage papers and watercolor paper. All supplies will be provided but you are free to bring anything personal you would like to add. You will learn how to stamp onto metals and leathers, different photo transfer processes and mixed media techniques. You will also learn beginning art journaling techniques so you can start filling your journal with your own art. All of my classes give clear step by step directions. Even if you have never created art before you will leave with not only a new piece of art but the knowledge to continue your own art at home.

$58 {$50 if taken with the vintage mixed media art class}




Vintage Mixed Media Art Class {3-5:00}


You will take a canvas and vintage elements to create a finished mixed media art piece. Each piece will include vintage papers, charcoal, pencil, paint and vintage hardware. You will learn different photo transfer processes, mixed media techniques and how to use water soluble pencils to create beautiful art. All supplies will be provided. You will leave with a completed vintage mixed media art piece on a door plate (escutcheon) stand. All of my classes give clear step by step directions. Even if you have never created art before you will leave with not only a new piece of art but the knowledge to continue your own art at home.
