Join us for a FULL day of creativity
 as Jen Starr works us over

 Just look at what you will learn:

This workshop will give you the 
“basic training” needed to translate a variety of
 paint theory and technique in to ANY project. 
Whether you are a Scrapbooker, card maker, art journaler, etc.,
you will leave with 
 the confidence to incorporate paints in to anything you do! 
We will tackle basic color theory,
 truly understanding the color wheel and how it works,
 proper blending to create crisp colors, 
a variety of basic and unique application techniques, 
incorporating mediums and textures…
and how it all works together in “Mixed Media”.
 This class will give you the knowledge
 to use paints to their full and beautiful potential!
 We will be working in 6x6 format

 to create a collection to reference.

 the creative possibilities are endless!
