It’s good to invent and play and relax into light adventure as surfaces transform in ways that are both planned and unexpected. I help you combine, layer, design and build richness. Following simple principles of composition to make each move with confidence, we’ll simply add one step to the next to build. You are bringing with you the finest ingredient–your imagination. In Studio 2 our art-making is genuinely fun; gelli printing can be a delightful series component if the class wishes.

“Paints ~ Papers ~ Prints” allows us to complete several pieces. No experience necessary. Guided projects at the outset involve working on boards, paper, or canvas and selecting from an assortment of ingredients. Members may utilize their own materials, or if preferred, arrange to use materials I provide.

Collect interesting papers, pages and found materials which resonate, and the odd tool to work them, and I’lI offer you techniques which complement your intention and style. Some tools and adhesives for layering are provided. Go for simplicity or build depth and dimension—the choices are endless and results are often exciting.

I enjoy sharing what I love. After being a full-time artist for decades which included a successful history of custom work for clients, I am happy to be in my 11th year of teaching here. I often feel proud of my students’ growth. Studio 2 is our haven, a warm place where we uplift each other as we learn. In our final class we celebrate with a group showing of finished work and pieces in progress and a little repast.

I’ve exhibited in the US and Italy, galleries, museum shows, etc. I show both abstract and representational art, and I paint on silk. See my pieces in Gateway and Creekside and at annageorgeartist.com and at annageorgeonline.com. Ask about news of upcoming shows of my work nearby.

I offer on request a suggested materials list and guidance on choosing materials. Reach me at 925 783 9000 with questions/enrollment needs. Registration must be completed on the website in advance. Thanks for joining me. See you in November! No class 11/22.
