You design - I draw - You paint
For this workshop we will be creating hand painted mermaids that represent you! I will supply the 8x10 canvas and the paint and brushes. I will also be pre-drawing the mermaid onto the canvas for you. Everyone will get their own individual designed mermaid. Think of her as a mini portrait of yourself. Items can be added to the drawing to represent you!
I draw an outline and you paint! I will help you to use the paint to achieve the desired look you are going for. You will fill in all colors of the mermaid from her head down to her fin! We will be using acrylic paint. I will show you how to get a watercolor effect with the paint as well.
Now the hard part… Decide what you would like to have added to your mermaid:
Fashion accessories (some examples are hair accessories, sunglasses, scarf, jewelry)
An item that represents you - could relate to your job or a hobby (some examples are a stethoscope, messenger bag, starbucks, paintbrush, shopping bags, wine glass)
And you may also choose two little extras (starfish, catfish, seahorse, baby narwhal)
Pre-registration is required. When you register for this workshop, you will be fill in a brief form asking how you would like your mermaid designed.
