I am re-running “Y is for Yellow” over the summer (June 22 – August 3, 2018). This online class was originally a year-long class, with the end goal of working on and developing a cohesive series. As a shorter, summer program, I think participants can decide to approach it two ways:
Focus more on the series aspect of the class. Spend the six weeks going through the stages of researching & playing, resting, focusing & deciding, working (in tandem with a few others for support and accountability), and finishing!
Focus more on just playing in the studio with the drawing and mixed-media assignments. There are 26 drawing assignments and 10 mixed-media assignments… so much content! But you are invited to pick and choose the assignments that speak to you the most and leave the rest for self-study later.
Here the eight mixed-media projects (following are screen shots from the lesson PDFs):
B is for Picasso Blue Period Paintings (watercolor and gel medium):
C is for Cut Contour Collages (mixed-media):
D is for Drybrush Dares (acrylic painting):
I is for Improv Paintings (mixed-media):
K is for Klee-Inspired Color Grid Paintings (layering in watercolor):
L is for Loose Landscapes (acrylic painting):
Q is for Quintessentially You (your choice of materials):
S is for Somewhat Surrealist (mixed-media painting):
T is for Taped, Textured Trees (mixed-media paintings):
Y is for Yellow Kitty (photograph and mixed-media):
I hope this gives you a good overview of what to expect this summer! Please consider joining the fun… great lessons for families, too! The cost is $99 and you will have forever access to the lessons; click HERE for details!
