Upcoming Workshops Summer 2014

Pulp Painting at Kitsune Community Art Studio!
Studio of Artist Judy Shintani, 514 Kelly Ave, Half Moon Bay, CA
July 27, 10 AM - 4 PM
$80 Covers class fee and all materials

Join us in July to learn the basics of making handmade paper in the European tradition. Students will learn the basics, from dry fiber to sheet formation, as well as techniques for embellishing bare sheets into works of art using a technique called Pulp Painting. Pulp painting uses finely beaten paper pulp that can act almost like paint to make brilliant imagery in handmade paper. When dried, the painting is an actual part of the paper, which can stand alone or be transformed further through drawing, printing, traditional painting, or whatever you can think of for a mixed media creation. This class will cover various pulp painting techniques including direct painting, stencils, collage inclusions, and other means of pulp-based mark-making. Techniques for making paper at home will also be discussed. No experience necessary. Limited to 6 participants. Please bring a lunch.

After the workshop, consider enjoying a walk on the beautiful beaches of Half Moon Bay!
