Zentangle Workshop

by Janie Brackney

This is it! Just what you have been waiting for! A Beginners Zentangle class. You don’t have to know how to do anything except hold a pen. That’s all. Oh, and have FUN! We are meeting at the Artist’s Studio at the Landing Mall in Port Angeles on Saturday and Sunday, May 6th and 7th. The only thing you need to bring is your willingness to have a great time and learn something new.

All supplies are provided and refreshments will be served. Pre-registration either by phone or email is required so I can plan on supplies and how much space I need to prepare for. Space is limited so register early. Price is $70. Class runs from 11:00am – 2:00pm both days. Depending on how much we get done we might work on black paper on Sunday, but we’ll be starting with white paper on Saturday. We have squares, triangles, and circles to draw on and lots of strokes to learn together. Questions or registration: or 360-912-2850 (leave a voice message!)

Collage & Mixed Media with Barbara DePirro

MAY 21, 10:30-5:00

At the Landing Mall, Port Angeles, WA

Instructor: Barbara De Pirro

Online Registration:

Fee: $100

Discover methods of combining textile, fiber, paper, found objects and acrylic to create inspirational artworks.  Build up surface texture, imagery and pattern using both collage and assemblage techniques, combined with a range of textural acrylic products.  Gain a concise understanding of the qualities each product offers; in creating texture, for gluing and embedding. Moving beyond any preconceived notions of what defines collage; this workshop will expand your vocabulary of methods and approaches, presenting new pathways in your own individual artwork.  Each artist will create samples of each product, process & technique; each detail will be documented, creating a reference that will prove to be an invaluable resource for all future projects.  All levels are welcome.

All products graciously provided by Golden Artist Colors.

Most other supplies & tools provided by instructor.
