The third of a  4-workshop series was held yesterday at the Artesia branch of the County of Los Angeles Public Library. The ancient art of marbling was taught by artist & designer Morgan Meredith. Participants learned how to create elaborate patterns before dipping their paper into the paint/water mixture. There were some beautiful patterns and color combinations created. Thank you to Morgan and all the incredible volunteers for another successful art workshop!

We had a great turnout for Saturday's Artist-Led Workshop at the Artesia branch of the County of Los Angeles Public Library. Tamarind Rossetti taught acrylic painting on recycled canvas. The participants learned how to mix warm and cool colors to create their own unique artwork. We had so many talented, budding artists present. And a big thank you goes out to all the amazing volunteers! We'll see you again on August 9th when Morgan Meredith teaches marbling on paper.

Experimenting With Stripes

The design for this poster came from a large stripe that I've been working on....a stripe big enough to cover the side of building. I was curious to see how the stripe would work when it was scaled down and repeated in a slightly different way. I kept the screen print colors simple - just black and white. I especially like the poster that has the triangles leftover from last week's prints.

Experimenting With Pattern, Color And Scale

I have been creating a series of digital posters that explore pattern, color, repetition and scale. Here is one of the posters screen printed on recycled chipboard. While the chartreuse didn't print as bright as I'd have liked on the chipboard base, I think the design has potential. More posters to follow in the coming weeks.
