I am thrilled to be hostessing local CO artist Donna L. Martin for this one of a kind mixed media class. Branching Out-Creating the Essence of Trees!

“Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky.” – Kahlil Gabran

Trees have so many stories to tell.  From their roots to their branches, they know when to stand and when to fall.  They change with the seasons, easily and gracefully. They are witnesses to history and hidden conversations.  Not only are trees essential for life, but as the longest living species on earth, they give us a link between the past, present and future.

In this workshop, together we will capture the essence of a tree using our own creativity and imagination. We will start by creating a one of a kind, unique background, created with layers of papers, inks, paints, stencils and stamps.  I will share various techniques for creating life-like trunks, branches, and limbs. Your painting will evolve into a beautiful piece of art honoring you and your creative journey.

All supplies are provided except for your canvas.  We will be creating on a 16 X 16 stretched canvas, but you are welcome to go bigger.  I am including a link in case you want to order online:

Michael’s carries 20x20 & 24x24 and they often have sales and coupons.

No experience is necessary. I am happy to guide you every step of the way.

Light refreshments will be provided. There is a full kitchen at the studio if you would like to bring your lunch.
