“Paint Your Garden” with Diane Culhane from Silly U on Vimeo.
2-Week Class; 6 Lessons Total
Class Session: June 2-14, 2014
We will explore six different painting techniques that deal with how we touch the surface of our paintings and the characteristics of the paint itself, including: Sgraffitto , Masking, Frottage Texturing & Blown Blots.
These techniques will become essential tools, not only for creating areas of mystery and intrigue in your work, but also for inspiring new ideas as your paintings evolve.
We will start by making test paintings of each technique to discover how viscosity and the physicality of the surface play a foundational role in the creation of a painting.
Our test paintings will then become an opening conversation, leading the way to three completed paintings of your garden, real or imaginary.

I’m very excited for Diane’s class! I planted several flower pots today so I am ready to “paint” my garden! I really like Diane’s playful painting style and she is an excellent teacher!!!
What a great idea, Jill. I couldn’t agree more with you on Diane style and being a great teacher. I am still tempted… and may join you anyway (even though I have a lot of other lessons to finish). 😀

I love Diane’s classes! I am very tempted, if I can find the time!

I am really interested in this class and thinking about signing up even though its finished. the thing about having the facebook group is that I can’t look to see what everyone is doing. I know you have to protect the course content to a certain extent but I am curious and it might encourage me to sign up.

The description of this class says it is a self-study but I don’t see how to sign up for that.
