Metal Embosssing Workshop with Debi Drew @ Margaret Lane Gallery
Oct 6 @ 2:00 pm

We will begin by creating a simple drawing/design on a sheet of aluminum that we will turn into a raised image. A second embossing method will also be demonstrated using metal tape. Both methods will be done on your own metal embossing sampler, which you can take home for future reference and display. Next, we will create an 8”x10” metal embossing using your method(s) of choice. Finally, acrylic paint will be used to enhance your metal art. Metal embossing provides immediate gratification and a cool way to express your creativity!

This workshop is designed for adults age 16 and above. No prior experience is necessary. All materials are supplied.

Blackout Poetry Workshop with Jillian Goldberg @ Margaret Lane Gallery
Oct 23 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Using random texts from old books or magazines, we select words that resonate for us. These words can be used to create a prose-poem or inspirational message. We then either black out the remaining words, or use doodling to isolate our chosen words.
While the Instructor will have pages with text to work on, students are encouraged to bring pages they enjoy such as old cookbooks, dictionaries, poetry. The instructor will supply examples and handouts on simple doodle and “tangle” patterns, as well as stencils students can use for page decoration. Students are encouraged to look at examples of “Blackout Poetry” on Pinterest to spark ideas for their own work.
Instructor Jillian Goldberg taught art at all levels for over thirty years. Since retiring ten years ago, she has been painting and showing work in group and solo shows in the region. She continues to explore new media and techniques, attending workshops and visiting museums on her travels.
Absolutely no art experience is required. All materials will be supplied.
Workshop is designed for adults and mature teens age 16 and up.
