Hello Hello!!! A giant, warm welcome to Wordplay Painting.

I am so excited to share with you the many wonders of infusing our artwork with compelling, meaningful and irresistible words!

We will begin our class by finding and preparing a few used books and turning them into what will become our Art Books.

Think of your Art Books as small laboratories for exploration, inspiration and play. There we will use words as inspiration, as graphic elements, as lists, and as the subjects of small paintings and drawings. We will also work, much as a writer might, by considering things such as composition, editing (room for the eye to rest), titles, and character development.

We will explore through prompts poetry and personal handwriting as well as make one larger piece that will combine the techniques we have gathered along the way. Even our book covers will act as canvases!

I look forward to spending time with you and delving into the rich set of possibilities that we will find together when focusing on working with words in our work!

All my best!
with love, Lynn
