Spend the morning with artist Aleta Jacobson to delicately craft a botanical scene using water color, unique stains, and colorful textured paper. Lose yourself in the process of creating shapes and textures with unlikely materials and enhancing your design with decorative pens and watercolor. Beginners to advanced students are all encouraged to join! All students will receive the basic materials (glue, origami paper, decorative paper, tracing paper, and staining materials) and a materials list of additional art supplies upon registration. The virtual two-hour class will take place through Zoom on Saturday, August 21 at 10am.
Aleta Jacobson is a working artist, instructor, and designer who specializes in creating powerful collage, mixed media, watercolors, and acrylic paintings using a variety of tools and materials. Aleta is inspired by life events, current events, nature, and the environment. Learn more about Aleta’s beautiful work by visiting her website aletajacobsonartist.com.
