Wet Cyanotype Workshop

Wet Cyanotype Workshop

No ARTISTIC Talents Needed!
We will spend a good bit of time outside but when in th home studio you will be ask to use a mask and social distancing.
Come be introduced to the beautiful art form of UV reactive wet cyanotype. You will love the striking wet cyanotype prints you make at this workshop. The workshop will be held at the home studio beginning on Friday evening at 6:30 pm. On Saturday we will meet again at my home studio a day of “cooking” our prints in the sun or any UV light available to us.  Be sure to bring your digital camera or smartphone to photograph your prints each step of the way.
The cost of the workshop includes watercolor paper, rice paper, printmaking paper, cyanotype kit, and all other supplies needed including glass panels. After registration, you will be provided with a supply list of things you will find helpful. You will need to gather leaves and flowers, press them flat in a book and bring them to class on Saturday. You are also welcome to bring lace, and other textures items to use in printing. I love to use onion bags, stencils, and many other odd items.
You will have supplies to take home for more printing on your own. If you love botanical and nature art, you are sure to love this art form! 
Be sure to bring your lunch on Saturday!
A detailed supply list will be sent one week prior to the workshop.

Finding Your Inner Artist

Finding Your Inner Artist

Greencastle: Joyful Arts Studio 

Tuesday Evenings in June * 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Dates & Times listed below must be purchased together – Cost is $126.00

June 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, & 30th

“Finding Your Inner Artist” class is your quest to find your “inner artist”. If you are
already an experienced artist, Susan will help you grow as an artist. However, no previous art experience is necessary to take, and to succeed, in this class.
*You choose your medium whether it be oil, watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil, graphite or collage.
*You choose what you want to learn to draw and paint.

*You choose your painting surface.
The creative process is done under the watchful, and instructive eye of Susan
Shaffer. Come learn to paint in a relaxed, nurturing, warm, and loving environment. Susan helps her students “let go” of stress and connect with their “inner artist”. She provides a practical approach, as she gives hands-on demonstrations, and ongoing guidance, in order to help you create your work of art! Class size is limited to eight students to allow her to work individually with each person. There is value added to this class when you are able to learn things from someone else’s project … While one student is creating an oil landscape, another may be drawing a portrait; while one is creating a whimsical acrylic painting, yet another may be painting a lovely watercolor floral.
Susan loves to help her students accomplish a painting they will be proud of and it is
her belief this can best be accomplished by incorporating their interests into the entire learning process.
Forming new friendships, with like-minded people, is yet another benefit of these classes.
We enjoy our common interest of art, as well as good music, chocolate, an occasional glass of wine, birthday celebrations and loving support of each other’s work!
If you don’t know how to draw, don’t let that stop you. (Susan painted for seven years
before she learned to draw.) She teaches her students through a “hands-on” practical approach. She provides frequent demonstrations, offers tips and techniques to allow you to work smarter, not harder.
You will need to have your own art supplies. Susan will provide a supply list, many of which
can be purchased at Joyful Arts Studio.
Come and discover your “INNER ARTIST” and enjoy an escape from daily life, in a positive learning environment!
