Have you been struggling with controlling color? Do you mix a lot of mud? Well, no more! This class will have you painting with color confidence. Using a simple still life as a reference, learn to work with the color wheel to lighten and darken your colors, find out why values are so important, and more. These color mixing lessons will be taught by demos and then students will use their new knowledge in class with a still set up. Please touch base with Dawn (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions. Bring a sack lunch. Min. 4, max. 10.

|All right, I have finished my gnome and dropped here off at Cabbatown Clay and Glass works for the May 11 auction. I think she looks pretty good in my garden. I hate to part with her.|
On Saturday, May 11, from 4:00 – 7:30 pm, the Cabbagetown Clay and Glass Works (CCGW) and Garden*Hood, are making it easy to own your own Gnomes in the Hood. Enjoy the sights and scents of spring plants, sip a cocktail, and view garden gnomes of all varieties. The event will feature one-of-a-kind gnomes (or “gnomesses”) created by 25 local artists (painters, sculptors) who have joined forces with CCGW’s artists. The unique gnomes will be auctioned off by silent auction with light hors d’oeuvres and cocktails in the luscious flowering space of Garden*Hood, a neighboring plant and garden center. Gnomes in the Hoodwill benefit CCGW, http://ccgworks.wordpress.com/ a non-profit, cooperative, artist-run studio, and to support their community outreach. CCGW members will be presenting free workshops to local transitional housing programs for women and for veterans.
|Here are s few of the amazing gnomes created by the folks at CCGW. Awesome!!!|
Come out and bib on some Gnomes!!!

This is a palette knife painting I did as a demo for one of my palette knife classes. I just really like the way the light bounces around on this one. One of the students wanted to buy it in class, but I just felt so uncomfortable talking about money and sales during the workshop, I wouldn't sell it. So believe it or not, I still have this little jewel.

Just send me an email if you would like to take this one home, it's ready to meet you!
Thankfully Saturday and Sunday turned out to be perfect and we all forgot about the rainy, cold Friday! I had such a nice time seeing friends and meeting new art collectors. Here are a few treasures that have found new homes
