Birds and Butterflies inspire our imagination and capture our hearts!
In this fun, nature-inspired class we will begin by gathering photos of birds and butterflies. Next will make acrylic paintings on fabric with a step-by-step technique that makes realism surprisingly simple.
From there we will embellish our realistic butterflies and birds with stenciling, bits of old lace, stitching, buttons, pearls, sequins, beads, or vintage rhinestone jewelry, and then put it all tougher with found collage ephemera to make intimate, personal, and fun pieces of art. Once we start assembling our collages, the sky’s the limit for the different things you can do.
