'Beyond Colour Fields' Introduction Video

Find out what you. love

In this class I invite you to play around and take your time to prepare yourself and find out what you love, before you start with your canvas. For me, this is the ultimate way to get into the painting process! I invite you to discover new printing techniques with things you find in and around your home. 

Once you have an idea about your composition, your colours and you know your favourite printing items, you start with your project. 

We work with acrylic paint and decorate our art pieces with stamps, carving and stencilling.

Printing Paradise

Have you ever printed with a placemat? Sounds crazy, but you could use almost everything. Think of candle holders, plates, packages, etc.

Warning for your housemates: Acrylic paint all over the place!  😃
