Love 'em or hate 'em, sea nettles (aka jellyfish) are a part of beach living! When they’re in a soggy, gelatinous pile on the beach it’s hard to find anything to like, but when seen floating through the blue waters, sea nettles transform into something entirely different!

This project reads as difficult to do, but there’s a secret to creating the beauty of the translucent quality of the nettle and it is surprising simple! Come and join me at Keeton’s Office and Art Supplies in Bradenton, FL to learn more about a simple and effective method to capturing this creature on the page.

The cost of this class is $35. To register for this class, please call Keeton’s at 941.485.2533

Hope to see you there!

Coming In July!

Come and join me for an introduction to Art Journaling with watercolors, pen and ink! Starfish exist in every body of salt water around the world with over 1,500 species! They can live up to 35 years in the wild and they can have up to 15 “arms.” 

Using granulating watercolors along with a bit of coaxing from the tip of the brush, I let the paint do the work of creating the starfish’s texture. Adding the pen work helps to create a polished look to the page. 

You’ll receive a FREE eight-page watercolor journal, permanent black pen and mechanical pencil that’s yours to keep as well as step-by-step instructions on how to create the vibrant starfish and add the lettering.

It's always so much fun to see everyone's interpretation of the class project and the Colorful Art Journal class was especially amazing! Take a look at some of these fabulous journals:


What Students Are Saying: 

"You're the first art teacher that has taught me I could do this on my own rather than only when I'm parked in a classroom and you've inspired me to try!" - SF 
"Thank you for teaching me. You did not just show me, you explained the steps to me so I could understand why I was doing something. Thank you!" - RA
"Easy to follow [project], fun class and great presentation. Laure was patient and encouraging! I'll be back."- CL 
"I had no idea what I was doing as a first time student and I could not be more thrilled with my flamingo! This was fun. I cannot wait to try new subjects." - NS 

Past Classes:
Saturday, September 24th: So many gorgeous seashells!
It always amazes me to see all the different interpretations of an page you get when everyone starts off from the same starting place. Color and pattern choices along with varying page sizes gave everyone's final page a very unique look but all were filled with fabulous seashells! If you can, please come and join us next time!

Saturday, July 23rd: You should have joined us for Ice Cream and Stencils!
Oh, wow, what a fun class! Here are three of the ladies from class and their sketchbooks. It was fun to see what everyone came up with and no two turned out the same. I hope you can come and join us next time.
