Berlin inspired Collage Workshop

We had such an amazing time hosting this group of students from London while they were exploring Berlin and making art. We designed a unique workshop for the students to channel their experience of the city into mixed media artworks. 

Accordion Sketchbooks

These accordion sketchbooks were made in the recent Watercolor Accordion Book Workshop with Giulia Caruso. 

Make your own sketch book and learn watercolor techniques in this workshop led by artist Giulia Caruso. Giulia will guide the class with step by step demonstrations of each new technique!
Learning to sketch is like learning a new language: a form of perception and ability to communicate. Shapes and colors tell the story of a place and we will focus on the quickest, most efficient ways to transcribe these fleeting experiences.
Choosing the best tools when sketching on location is essential for scenarios where space and time are limited. We will learn how to use watercolor with a “water-brush” and how to mix it with pens and graphite.
We will make a Japanese style accordion sketchbook with watercolor paper, to be used for the field trip and life drawing session.
