Loponen brings with her 40 years in the art/design world, which includes 29 years using acrylic media. She worked with drawing and watercolours in schools under the Artist in School and Art Edventure programs since 1985. She taught a mixture of adults and doctors who wanted, Relaxing with Watercolours.
The workshop will use acrylics, modeling paste and a palate knife on canvas boards. Similar to Zen of Watercolour workshops the focus is on creative imagination inspired by the surrounding environment. An overlay print of textures added to the playtime…screens, cloth, pebbles; leaves etc. may be used as special effects. You will come away with a semblance of an appealing landscape.
For those who wish to make a 2-D image from 3D landscape there will be training wheels (grids on plexi glass) as visual aids to simplified shapes into the essence of the landscape details.
Loponen is flexible to the needs of the registrants and to any questions about art. No talent or skill required. “You are only limited by your imagination; art is not meant to be a struggle,” a playtime with the Creative Muse.
