Mermalicious with Jane 'Danger' Davenport

Mermaids represent enchantment, untamed beauty, persuasion, discernment and independence and they only appear to those that are true of heart. They are symbolic of our passions overruling the analytical mind and they remind us that the things we are attracted to don't have to make sense. It's ok to be captured by the odd, the quirky and other worldly!

In Mermalicious, we will create a shaped Artist's Book in which to pour mythical mermaids and salty sea creatures from our imagination!

We will dive into a deep sea of my drawing, painting and collage techniques. We will cover the technical skills of creating whimsical faces, with an emphasis on eyes and hair ( the fun stuff!), ethereal figures and placing them within the mini-universe of our journals. We will delve in deep and go beyond the basics. I love working with individuals with their own style. You will fill but not finish your Mermalicious Book, but you will leave class with the inspiration and techniques to let your art keep filling it.

This is the perfect time to create more magic in your life, by relaxing your vision and letting go. After the four day workshop you will resurface into the 'real world' drenched in the glow of truly magical color! Let the mermaids charm you into a churning sea of creativity, dreams and imagination.
