Linda T. Dautreuil Mixed Media Workshop

15 November 2017 To 16 November 2017

“Bewitched – From Storyline to Paint & Spaces in Between”

Linda T. Dautreuil Mixed Media Workshop
“Bewitched – From Storyline to Paint & Spaces in Between”
November 15 & 16 – 10:30 am – 4:00pm - $85
Skill Level Beginner to Advanced
When we tell stories, we engage in a process and painting is also a process.  Linda Dautreuil often references folk narratives in her art without illustrating the story.  Her interest lies in the non-linear story line that creates meaning in the visual context.
  Participants will work with 8x10 drawing paper for sketches and 16x20 canvas using acrylics, pencils, and charcoals with other mixed media.  Each participant will receive a synopsis of The Witch of Maurepas Swamp.
Sponsored in part by G.A.E.D.A and a grant from the N.E.A
