Excitement for Art and Soul 2011

It is not too early to start the excitement for Art and Soul Portland 2011. Are you ready to create several richly layered collages, complete and ready to display or give as gifts? Are you looking to learn some simple techniques that will make each piece of art unique? Come join me and play with collage in a smaller scale. I will be teaching "Block Party" at Art and Soul this fall. The possibilities are endless....
 Here are some of the other talented and creative instructors participating in the event. Please visit their blogs and be amazed.....
An artist and costume designer...she will be offering a chance to learn free motion embroidery using birds as you muse.

I love Stephanie's whimsical use of materials and inventive ways to combine nature and vintage elements. Her class offerings will definitely give you a chance to try out some of her amazing techniques.

Her colorful handmade fabrics and artful "anthologies" will tempt you to explore fabric as a new medium in your art.

Graphic, colorful journal play. Need I say more?

Marcia and Ty's experience with unconventional materials and their fun take on assemblage is definitely worth a look. They are offering classes in a wide range, from garden art to steam punk....

An Architectural Photographer and Graphic Designer with a passion for mixed media art. Her wonderful Green Art Journal is not to be missed.

Our fearless leaders blog has the latest information on Art and Soul happenings. Do you want to win a free stay at the Embassy Suites? Check it out....

Artist and author of one of my favorite books Collage Journeys , is offering classes in making "paint playgrounds." What could be more fun?
