Scenes from our "Musical Chairs Painted Canvas" Class in Cincy

"Musical Chairs:  A Painted Canvas Adventure" is a collaborative painting endeavor on gessoes canvas.
The students painted, switched positions, and painted over the work of others in the class.  Two canvases were set up and the students switched back and forth.  The first half of the day was spent on the paintings.
After our lunch break the canvases were divided and each student got a portion of both canvases.
These pieces were subsequently fashioned into journal covers, art cards, postcards, ATCs (artist trading cards), and more.  We played music and had a fantastic time!
Here is the progression of one of the canvases:

We gathered around a table and spent the afternoon creating
lovely pieces of art with the painted canvas, markers, etc.

This class is such a joy for Jamie and I to teach!
If you are planning to come to Costa Mesa to CREATE!, we will be teaching it there.
Please join us!
