Arty Party Fun

25 Jul

I love hosting the Arty Party every month. There are always different people attending, with varying degrees of artistic skills. Some people are quite comfortable in their artistic skills while others have had very limited experience with being creative or artistic. It is what I love most about doing the class. Seeing the ones that think they can’t do it, actually create something fun and beautiful and suddenly realize they CAN do it! Woo Hoo!!!!

I especially love seeing how everyone takes the same directions and creates something completely different from everyone else. Each person expresses their own artistic talent (yes everyone has talent, even if you don’t believe it!) in a way that is unique to them. Their art pieces speak to their own color palette and style and aesthetic. Each class inspires me more and more as I see the seeds of creativity start to sprout in each student. It is absolutely amazing to watch and experience and I know that is why I love doing these classes.

For the July Arty Party I really wanted to try to encourage the whole ‘mixed media’ style of art. The idea of using multiple techniques to create the piece is what mixed media is all about. For this project we started with a cradled canvas panel, then we used various paints, stencils, sprays, gel medium, napkins, photo copy images,  and lots of embellishments. We also used Gelatos, Inka Gold, Pitt Big Brush Pens, and Identipens.  Everyone really did create their own mixed media art piece.

I love the variety that was achieved. I can’t wait til next month to see what we do. I know the students will be exploring their artistic side and finding out that they can do it and that they like what they are doing! Amazing!

Perhaps you will join us at the next Arty Party. You know you want to!
