I share everything I know about impregnating burlap with plaster and how to work with this exciting yet old medium.    This inspiring workshop is loaded with step by step lessons and videos as though we were working side by side in my studio .




There is no experience necessary.  Many of my students hadn't held a paint brush since grammar school.  Yet, if you're an experienced artist, this workshop might inspire you learning to use  this richly, textured medium.

I designed this course to have three unique projects all using Plaster of Paris.  As you gain experience with each one, you become more comfortable with the medium.  


Remember the days of simple art projects, when we followed the teacher's direction and didn't care much about the outcome, but enjoyed the process of getting our hands all dirty and making art.  Even though our finish piece is a more adultlike version, the childlike process getting there is the same.

As we build experience from one project to the next, we add more ideas and techniques to the mix  giving each project a richness to the layers and artwork.

You will learn how to develop different ideas and apply them to your art to make them unique and exciting, while still discovering the unique texture of plaster. 



Although my  online workshop is over,  you will be able to purchase the DVD at Artful Gathering site.
