Textured Backgrounds (March 7th) - Kim Parkinson
It’s time to put more excitement into your projects. No more basic backgrounds. We are going to make those backgrounds shout out! Why shouldn’t the foundation of your art reflect what the rest of your art says… that you are talented, crafty and love to create!
Join Kim as she walks you through over 15 different background techniques. These techniques don’t have to be used just for backgrounds, either! You’ll be able to take many of these and apply them to all your projects. Kim will be creating 4-6 different ATC’s (Artist Trading Cards) for you each week, each one will have a background featuring one or more of the techniques taught that week. This 4 week class is technique based but there will be plenty of samples for you to look at and copy.
We will be playing with paints, inks, metal leafing, aluminum foil, glue, tissue paper, stencils and so much more! See the supply list for a list of the items you’ll need each week.
- Week 1: Mostly Paint
- Week 2: Mostly Ink
- Week 3: Watercolors and Shiny Backgrounds
- Week 4: Collages and Pastes
This was a fantastic class and I fully enjoyed the creativity of the class and the structure of it too. Would recommend this class to everyone. Thank you so much - Linda B, MCC Student
