On Etsy!

Hello Students who joined the free form art workshop!
Starting February 1, 2012 which falls next Wednesday. 

We will be learning three things in this class: 

Free form, Free Flow and free style

Free form: Is about forming your own ideas into lines and shapes. Making your art into your own unique style.
A signature defining your expression.
An art ownership defining who you are in your art.

Free flow: A free flow interaction of colors complimenting and welcoming each other creating beautiful personal imagery.

Free Style: Visually refining your doodles and scribbles coming to life.

Remember, this class is not about perfection, rules and all the other stuff that stops you from creating freely.

This class isn't about technique that will define your piece of art.
It will be about spontaneous fun, open, close and personal. It's unconventional. A path to your art discovery.

You will be given an assignment: Creating a 4page booklet from your 20 x 30 cold press sheet. Don't worry, there will be a tutorial on how to make the booklet easy and simple. More on this assignment on Sunday.

So please have your supplies ready on Wednesday Feb 1, 2012
For those who may be confused about which gesso to buy. Is white gesso and not clear gesso. More information about Video before class begins.


  1. Love your Frida amiga. Hope you are well. Take care.

  2. Hi Magaly...discovered I got home without my graphite and charcoal and india ink! So now have to go back to the store :) BTW is it alright to use pens that already have india ink in them? Frida would love your "Frida" more than I do!

  3. Love your Frida and symbolism. Looking forward to the class, finding freedom and discovering my style. Jan

  4. Hi Magaly, Where did you post the assignment for Sunday...the booklet, or have you not posted yet? jan
