Previous Workshops:

Objective Techniques and Mixed Media, an Alcohol Inks Workshop’ with Cynthia Csalovski

Participants learned how to use the vibrant and versatile medium of alcohol inks. Easily adhering to non-porous surfaces, alcohol inks can be used on tile, glass, metal, plastic, wood and leather.





“CONTEMPORARY MIXED MEDIA WORKSHOP” Advanced student workshop with internationally recognized Colorado artist and instructor,  Joan Fullerton

Participants explored working intuitively, responding to what showed up, working in a series and mixing and utilizing neutrals for softer, more ethereal abstracts. Touching on notions of confidence, procrastination, vulnerability, curiosity, courage, talent, play, inspiration, intuition, your mean critic, metaphor, symbolic elements, competition, marketing, your belief systems, finding balance, and more, this five day intense workshop had plenty of time to create with guidance from Joan.
