Artable events are in-home art experiences that make a difference! Each event is designed to offer participants an opportunity to step out of your comfort zone with projects designed to stretch you, make you think, and result in something expressive and beautiful to put in your home or share with others. Try new techniques, express your inner artist, step outside the box and make a difference for others in need of hope. Classes are taught by artist, Leslie Mears.
Who doesn’t love a new throw pillow? In this class, we will use acrylic paint and your own limited color palette to create art on a 16 x 16 pillow cover. Choose an inspiration from your home or from nature (leaves, shells, water...) and we will create a geometric pattern with options of layering, abstracting, simplifying and experimenting to put together a design that is unique to you! We will discuss color, pattern, texture, and balance and will complete the project in one evening. Artable art classes are designed to bring out your inner artist!
In this class we will create small canvases with acrylic paint. We will learn about different mediums and techniques, and in particular, cropping or “zooming in” on a subject to simplify, create interesting compositions, and focus on shapes, texture, and line. Choose your subject matter -flowers, leaves, fruit, feathers, etc. Using a viewfinder, we will consider color, balance, composition and pattern. Our version of a Georgia O’Keefe! Artable art classes are designed to bring out your inner artist!
A.K.A - Watercolor 101! First we will explore all the basics of watercolor. We will learn about paints, colors, techniques, helpful materials, mediums and how to apply paint in different ways. We will complete a series of practice works using varying techniques. Your final product will be an abstracted landscape or seascape painting using your own personal style, to take home. Artable art classes are designed to bring out your inner artist!
