Happy Sunday!

Today I want to introduce you to two new artist/teachers who have contributed classes to this year’s Summer Art Camp!

First, Seattle artist Rickie Wolfe is co-teaching a class with Stephanie Hargrave titled “Collaborative Collage,” where they will show two ways to transfer images onto wood, then work together to add collaged papers, the transfers, paint, and other touches to collages on wood. Here are some samples of some finished pieces made with the techniques taught in this three-day workshop:



And here are a few other collages from Rickie:

Rickie has taught printmaking and other classes at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle and we are really excited to have her teach this summer! See more of Rickie’s beautiful work at www.rickiewolfe.com.

Second, I want to introduce Niya Christine, who will be teaching a one-day mini workshop titled “Cows & Canaries!” This is a class for “painters who want to write and writers who want to paint,” and is based on a year-long project Niya completed in 2013, which culminated in her self-published book, “The Art of Daily Cultivation: A Celebration of 365 Story Paintings.”



Perspective Story3-150

In January 2013 Niya envisioned a 12 chapter book of 12 lively story themes. April was all about Cows and Canaries; she found the dynamics of these two organically unfit characters created easy fiction. In her class this summer Niya will walk you through her process!

Niya’s book tells two stories — the story of her personal journey back to a creative habit she once loved and the stories of each day’s painting. To find out more about Niya’s book, click HERE.
