October guest artist: Lisa Fulmer

Adding shading and finished pear

Join us for our next member meeting (the public is welcome, too!) at the Concord Library on Tuesday, October 11th from 1-3pm. Our guest artist is our CAA president, Lisa Fulmer.

Lisa will lead a hands-on demo for everyone to try - using Inktense watercolor pencils on raw canvas fabric. You'll be drawing a pear and blending shades of yellow, orange and green together with water to create interest and dimension. You'll get to bring home your canvas work of art - come play with us!

Start with sketching and wet brushing

The benefit of working on raw canvas is that it's textural and absorbent, plus you have so many options for what to do with your finished work. Mount it to a board, embroider on it, stitch it into a soft book or a pillow, collage it onto a canvas, use it in an art quilt or on a tote bag, or just place it under glass in a frame as is.

Below are a couple examples Lisa created for a manufacturer of embroidered iron-on letters - imagine illustrating your own soft canvas book for a special child, friend or family member!

Visit Lisa's blog to see more of her art and craft - we look forward to seeing you at the meeting. Bring along a couple flat brushes, a small and a medium size. Pencils, water cups and canvas fabric will be provided.
