The retreat (and classes) have been postponed due to the Corona Virus quarantine. Watch for updates.

  • Friday, April 17th 6:30-8:00 pm Experiment with various techniques to create and stamp seasonal trees. You class kit will include the rubber stamps that you will use in class for you to keep. (Hover over the photo to get a close up view of some of the differences.) This is a fun, relaxing class, perfect for an evening event.
  • Saturday, April 18th 2:00-4:00 pm Build A Cave utilizes multiple masks to build your cave. You will learn how to prevent your cave from looking like it is just the same image repeated over and over. You will get detailed, illustrated instructions to keep. We will use positive and negative color masks when adding our color and values. Translucent diffused light will be added. Participants should bring medium and small acrylic blocks equipped to hold red rubber, scissors, stylus and blending tips, a fine point white gel pen. Before class, I will most likely change the "view" from the cave, so your project will be this cave, but it may have a new "view".
