Artful Gathering 2012 Blog Hop!! Let's Get the Party Started!










I'm the Spotlight Artist for The Artful Gathering Blog Hop!



Follow along with me for fun, creativity, and a chance to win a
$200.00 e-gift card from Jerry's Artarama!



This summer I will be teaching TWO fabulous premiere video workshops at
The Artful Gathering Online Art Retreat 2012





Sweet ART

From June 6 to July 17


Come join me for 6 weeks of magically Sweet ART painting instruction. Over the course of this class we will be creating both a funky cake as well as a cupcake painting to brighten up your home in sweetness and color. Experimenting with a variety of gel mediums and layering techniques, I will walk you through the process of developing your backgrounds, adding fun textural elements then culminating with enhancing our pieces with shading as well as whimsical doodles.



And...




Who Are You?



From July 15 - August 25




I will be teaching my second workshop called, Who Are You? We'll celebrate WHO YOU are during a ‘semester’ of creative play. We will be painting with acrylics, experimenting with several mediums while we design a set of 3-4 8x10 paintings on canvas of funky owls in my very special whimsical style. Play with quotes or motivational words to tie your collection together as well as learn a variety of awesome techniques to add dazzle and texture to your paintings which you can apply to numerous other projects.

Hello Jodi, nice to meet you! I found your blog via Diane Cook and Cat Kerr's, letting us know about this fun blog hop. I've enjoyed seeing you art work and I have to say I love your bright, whimsical style...especially the lettering you showed in a recent post. Congrats on your recent article in Cloth, Paper, Scissors - I happened to see the encaustic-style article and now I can put a name and face with the beautiful art work.
