About The Event
Join us at Friends & Faire for a new workshop with artist, Nina Bindi! Learn the techniques and creative exploration of acrylic painting and mixed media/collage in this relaxing and FUN class! Below are some of the things we will explore together, depending on YOUR interest:
- Playing with colors in many ways
- Exploring the possibilities of layers
- Trusting the journey to find your own style
- Texturing and creating depth with a variety of utensils and materials
- Creating collage art by using the papers that we have painted as well as some specialty papers I provide by tearing or cutting in strips and then gluing them horizontally to create landscapes.
- Learning about abstract - not knowing beforehand and allowing the mystery to unfold.
All art supplies are included in this class: acrylic Paints, mediums, papers, and tools like brushes, pallet knives, stencils, scissors, rags, paper cutters, easels, sink, etc. By the end of class, you will take home all of your creations to keep or share with friends. Open to ages 12 and up.
I am a Painter and Collage Artist, using acrylic paints, high-quality papers, and archival glues on a variety of surfaces such as canvas, mat board, and birchwood plywood. My work is inspired by the rich colors of Maui, as well as the waterways of the Pacific Northwest. I am best known for the Lyrical Landscape Series, which I began creating at Sitka Arts and Ecology Center on the Oregon Coast, during an Art Residency in the Spring of 2017. Currently, I am passionate about creating Collage Paintings, made in layers to portray landscapes…mainly abstract. I begin by painting on paper and then tear in an ‘organic’ way for rough edges, as you can see on some of my work here and showcased on my website. Having always loved color and expressing creatively, it seems an integral part of my Soul's Journey…a mystery unfolding. Check out my website at www.ninabindi.net.
Class will be held at Friends & Faire at 1980 Main st. #4 Wailuku, HI 96793 (Behind Native Intelligence- free parking available). Feel free to BYO beer or wine to sip on and enjoy while you get creative! (21 and over)
