Channel your inner art heroine, add a sassy art apron and bitty versions of her supplies – what can be better than this?  Over the years, I have loved drawing quirky yet lovely girls.  In this course, you’ll get to see how I combine two of my newest character types to make intricately illustrated Art Heroines!  Together we’ll create girls that meant to inspire you on your wonder-filled art journey.


We’ll spend a day learning about advanced color-mixing and creating a variety of skin tones and mark-making.  On our second day, we’ll develop our characters and add my new inky, dramatic hairstyles and paint-splashed aprons. On our last day together, we’ll create a frame-worthy art heroine to take home and tuck in your favorite corner of your studio to inspire you to create even more!


Throughout the course we will have a wide variety of fun exercises and engaging activities, all tailored to support you and your creative process.  While all levels of artists are free to attend, some basic watercolor experience is very helpful to ensure you get the most out of the process.


In this workshop, we have access to Donna’s amazing studio and all the classroom supplies that come with it! This is a MIXED-MEDIA workshop with a giant dose of pencil work and watercolor.  A beautiful limited-palette of Daniel Smith watercolors will be supplied, but feel free to bring your own favorite/expanded watercolor palette, brushes and paper to get the most out of the weekend!
