BoiLeD BooKs: Intuitive Designs

Sunday, September 10, 2017 Noon- 3 PM

The Paper Seahorse, Tampa, Florida

Catch a glimpse of a butterfly. Spot the giraffe on safari. Notice the fairy peaking around the tree.

Create beautiful pieces of art by revealing what your unique eyes see in one-of-a-kind BoiLeD Books papers. BoiLeD BooKs is a process used to stain specialty paper with fresh flowers and leaves. We’ll explore techniques in developing your visual intuitiveness and use pencil, pen, pastels, and watercolors to “pull-out” images hidden in the abstract designs.

Create three pieces of art…one in each size 5 ½”x 3 ¾”, 5”x7”, and 8” x 10” frame-worthy papers. Mat for 5”x7” and all other materials included. Teacher – Rachelle Eason

BoiLeD BooKs Workshop

Saturday, September 16, 10 AM-4:30 PM

Polk Museum of Art, Lakeland, FL

Adventure into this unique use of fresh flowers and leaves with artist, Rachelle Eason and press, boil and extract the plants’ hidden colors between layers of specialty paper. Students will learn what makes plants stain beautifully and leave textured designs as they design layouts from a variety of plant materials including flowers, leaves, herbs and edibles.

Students will also learn to sew book bindings to create a charming journal and leave with one handstitched book and boiled book pages to bind, frame or incorporate into projects. Boiled book papers can be used for journals, stationary, or simply hung as art.

Sketchbook Lab

Mondays, September 25 – October 30, 6-9pm

Polk Museum of Art, Lakeland, FL

Embrace the beauty of the sketchbook as a source of practice and inspiration for creative thinking. Like brainstorming, but with art instead of words, students will fan the flames of imagination by exploring a different medium in each class: pencil, illustration pens, charcoal and watercolor. With warm-ups and guided exercises that lead into free-styling practice, students will forge habits of quick creative play and create a digest of techniques to refer to for inspiration.

Printmaking: Monoprint

Tuesdays, September 26 – October 31, 6-9pm

Polk Museum of Art, Lakeland, FL

Monoprinting is a fabulous art medium to incorporate into mixed media projects, but also stands as a medium of its own. Beginning with foam printing blocks, students will learn about reversing images, carving techniques, and which part of designs will show ink and which will show paper. The class will then move to linoleum block printing, learning to carve designs in the foreground and background, print in a single color and multiple colors, and print patterns using one design. Finally, students will explore Gelli Plates, creating fabulous designs through layered paint, print masks, and textures.
