Description: Tribal Vibes : 2 -day Dot Painting and Mixed media Workshop

Join us for this unique 2-day workshop led by Artist Linda McCowan ( Linja) 

Prepare to learn and experiment with several cultural art techniques including Australian style dot painting, hand built clay tokens, New Zealand Paua Shell & metal leafing embellishments.  This experience will culminate in each participant combining the skills learned to create their own unique large format piece of original art.

Specific Skills and Topics Include:

  • Introduction to Australian Aboriginal style dot painting

Learn to create a profusion of joyful dots–symmetrical, asymmetrical, varied sizes, tonal gradients,sequenced patterns, running, overlapping, intertwining, layered—with endless ways to tell a story. Explore ways to use a variety of dot making tools to apply high-pigment paints to a professional canvas panel. 

  • Explore a personal connection to a Southwest Ancient figure

The central southwest style figure you choose to inspire the outline of your dot painting will help create a “soulful” work. Explore your connection with this figure and with telling its story.

  • Enjoy hand-building clay tokens, like the Ancients

Stamping and molding clay tokens/ tesserae will serve as texturally interesting focal points on your original dot painted panel.

  • Learn how to incorporate Shell & metal leaf bonus skills

 Shape and add New Zealand Paua shells as well as learning a gilding technique

*Please note that this class is limited to eight students
