Would you like to dance with your inner-artist?
Want to complete a whole series of paintings? Having trouble finding some inspiration to paint, and to keep painting? Well you are in the right place. The Alphabet Dance is a course that will get you out of your painting rut, open your eyes to the possibilities of completing an entire series of paintings, and the tools to keep on going even after the course ends!
So what exactly does the Alphabet Dance entail?
It’s a 6-week E-course that takes us through the letters A-Z on one subject matter, and in one creative medium. This round’s subject will be Animals and the medium will be Mixed Media on Paper.
How does this course work?
For the first four days of the course I will guide you through some mixed media techniques, specifically ones that will work best for this round of the course, which will be videos. This will be a mini-bootcamp of how to mix your colors, collage techniques, and what the heck to do with those supplies you received.*
*if you opted to go the un-boxed route, then you will want to refer to the materials list, and if you are missing anything that we go over, feel free to wing it, and go with your gut. Art is amazing that way!
Starting that Friday and then every Monday-Friday for the following five weeks: a post will go up in the virtual classroom and you will receive an email reminder with a photo of an animal to use as a reference, the letter of the day, and an inspirational prompt. Your job is to create, have fun, and explore this medium in-depth. The best part about the alphabet dance is that by the time you get to letter Z you have really worked with these materials to the point where it becomes second nature. Hopefully this inspires you to keep on going and make art a part of your everyday life.
There will also be a private Facebook group where we can share our progress, struggles, questions, and inspiration. There will also be a private classroom on my website where you will be able to post your letters each day, and we will have an amazing alphabet dance party gallery.
After we have completed our alphabet I will post some inspiration, and tutorials for you on what you can make out of your letters. There are so many fun projects to create with a complete Alphabet. I will share some of my favorites with you!!
At the end of this course I encourage you to photograph the entire collection, or hang them on your wall. It is an amazing feat to have completed 26 consecutive works of art, and also a lot of fun!
What do I get?
There are two versions of this course, but you can get the same out of the course whichever path you decide. Here is an overview of the boxed and unboxed versions…
