Oct. 2015 – Stamford, CT

I am delighted to be teaching three full-day workshops this year at Art Is You Mixed Media Art Retreats.  I’ll be in the Stamford venue in October 2015, along with more than 20 artist educators.  You can see the entire list of instructors here. What a crowd!  This Retreat is like none other and you will surely thrive in the company of others who come with an open mind and heart, ready to laugh and to learn, and to give their creative sides some breathing room.

Art Is You Mixed Media Art Retreat - Workshops with Marjie Kemper Stamford, CT - 2015

Art Journaling: Building Backgrounds (Friday, October 9th, 10am-4pm)

Layers add interest to everything. Learn a variety of ways to build layers using color, design and texture on your pages. Some layering will be subtle, some… notsomuch! Dig into my extensive supply collection to build up your pages. We’ll work with stamps, stencils, dies and much, much more. Techniques learned will cross over easily to other paper, canvas, or quilting projects.

Art Journaling: Faces & Figures (Saturday, October 10th, 10am-4pm)

Love art journaling and mixed media work, but need a bit more confidence in adding figures and faces to your art? You don’t need to know how to draw. Dig into my collection of stamps, stencils, masks and dies to create whimsical pages featuring faces and figures. You’ll learn many ways to make those faces and figures stand out from the background and take center stage on the page. These techniques will cross over easily to other paper, canvas, or quilting projects.

Tantalizing Technique Assemblage (Sunday, October 11th, 10am-4pm)

Join me today as we embellish this gorgeous printer’s tray… center yours on a theme or a specific occasion such as a wedding or special vacation, or go with a whimsical dreamy theme like I did. The sky’s the limit on this custom wall art project! Loads of techniques and mixed media products will be shared. We’ll create faux finishes and glazes, work with watercolor markers, experiment with wet and dry embossing, use stamps, stencils and more. You won’t believe how much I bring for shared use!
