Adult Classes

Adult Fingerpainting Workshop

image3

Wednesday, March 27

7PM - 9PM 

BYOB


Fingerprinting is a simple way of creating art without the use of brushes.  Non-toxic acrylic paints are applied to a prepared canvas board, stretched canvas, or other surfaces using the fingers.  Paints are smoothed, dabbed, and mixed on the surface.   As part of the workshop, Phyllis demonstrates that any tool, even a brush, can be used to achieve a desired effect that can't be done by fingers alone.  She will also show the workshop participants how fingernails can be employed to create lines and other tools, such as sticks can also be used to create more texture. 


About the Artist

Phyllis has been creating art of one sort or another all her life. Hand-made decorations, uniquely crafted Christmas cards, high school stage sets, and computer graphics – you name it.  She fell in love with watercolor and studied with Donald Voorhees to learn how to control that medium; she continues to evolve her individual water color style, exhibiting her work in both solo and group shows.  Always experimenting with new media, Phyllis found finger painting quite enjoyable and rewarding.  Phyllis likes to share the joy of creating with others.
