You will discover fun and innovative ways to transfer images into your paintings and collage. We will work with acrylic mediums, paints and unique tools to create depth and texture. No experience is necessary, in fact beginners mind is a great place to start. Isn’t it wonderful when you can walk into a fully stocked art studio, everything is set up and you don’t need to bring a thing? Yes, it is. You will go home with 2-3 finished works of art. This is a real treat to enjoy this small class with author, artist and international workshop instructor, Sandra Duran Wilson. Please bring your imagination and I’ll take care of the rest (includes all materials, taxes and snacks). Fee: $275 + accommodations (The Inn and Spa at Loretto) Dates available in March: •
