Additional artist events April 9th include ->

Theresa Poalucci will be demonstrating Alcohol Inks, creating several paintings that feature different techniques.  Alcohol ink is highly pigmented dye and, of course, alcohol based. These inks are manipulated using isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol to you and me). As the inks are alcohol based they evaporate much quicker, so the paint dries in only a few minutes.  You have to work fast, but they are great for blending colors.  Watch and learn as Theresa creates desert scenes on Yupo paper.

Judy Munger will be demonstrating her skills with basket weaving. She will be using a 6" round wooden base, 1/4" flat-oval natural reed for the spokes, 3/16" flat-oval dyed reed for the weavers. The weave will be a simple 2-over, 2-under continuous pattern creating an attractive twill pattern and allowing the weaver to adjust the size of the basket to suit her purpose.Come watch the twill pattern develop.

Linda Mann is an author, photographer, and artist.

Her art work honors the diversity and natural beauty of the Southwest, especially the Sonoran Desert.  Her favorite subjects are the desert flowers, animals, and Native people.

She will be painting and drawing on April 9th.

Barbara Conaway will be doing a demo and talking about how to use different techniques for drawing.  Although Barbara's work is primarily in oil, she believes that drawing is a fundamental skill that can be taught using a basic understanding of how we see.  Drawing isn't just for artists - it's for everyone.  For Barbara, drawing isn't just a way to start a painting, it's a way to exercise your mind, challenge your brain and practice mindfulness.
