Palette Knife Painting in Watercolor will be taught by Karen Kappell on October 16th at the Kimball Community Center. Keeping strong colors in watercolor can be a challenge and in this class we will learn one way of creating bold and vibrant watercolor paintings. Using a palette knife as well as a brush, we will create textures with watercolor media, practice the techniques, and then apply them to a painting. You will learn to use a palette knife to add or subtract paint. Bring paints, palette knife, brushes, 300# watercolor paper or stretched watercolor paper and photos of large, light values flowers. Also bring a lunch. Class fee is $35 for Range Art Members and $40 for non-members. Contact Gail Kniska at 715-561-2072 to register.

Mixed Media Collage workshop is for artists of all levels from teens to adults with Ar Schneller at Downtown Art Place.

We will use a range of different products to expand your creativity and  inspire  you to make your own art piece with special techniques.   Work on either canvas, board or heavy weight paper. A multitude of materials and art supplies will be provided as well as great instruction. It’s all about the layering and composition.  Learn what looks right and what doesn’t.

Start creating your own personal art.  Learn how mixed media techniques can add a magical and transforming element to your work. You’ll be amazed at your results in a relaxed art atmosphere.  During the process of painting the background and setting the mood of your piece, you can also begin to add collage elements, altered pictures and photographs, handmade papers, stamping, stenciling and much more.  Layering a background takes time and needs to dry once you finish blending them.  Bring a blow dryer and any personal items to incorporate into your piece. Dress for a mess of glue and paint.

Class fee is $ 30.   Members of either DAP or Range Art have a discounted fee of $ 25.  Workshops will be held at Downtown Art Place classroom on  October 22nd, from 10-2 with a lunch break OR choose evening workshop from 5-9 with a dinner break.  Bring your own food and beverage.  Maximum 10 students per workshop.
