Whimsical Ladies

Create your own Whimsical Lady Portrait Story! As a self-portrait or as a gift for someone special or simply create a whimsical character. Barbi will lead the group through a Whimsical Portrait lesson. We will create and transfer our sketch to the surface and then paint. As our base layer dries, we will have a mini doodle lesson meant to inspire your next layer; Lovely Lines! This workshop features liquid acrylics to create the piece and includes:

  • All Supplies
  • Pre-prepped 10×10 wood panels $125

*In the process of this workshop, an Acrylic skin (dried paint from palettes then peeled off) could be formed which should be saved if you plan on attending a future Salvage Flower Workshop.

4 hours – $125+hst per person

Love Note to You

An uplifting mixed-media workshop that is a bit messy or not, your choice. 🙂 Barbi will guide you in the creation of your Love Note to You. You will create a self–portrait surrounded by a colourful, watercolour background, then we will add a quote. The workshop also includes a lesson in Barbi’s Whimsical One’s portrait style. There is also plenty of room for your own creativity, in fact, this is highly encouraged! And you will be able to create as many Notes to You as you would like within the workshop time frame. Participants are encouraged to have, on hand, their own favourite inspiring quotes. Barbi will bring her favs too. This workshop features liquid watercolours to create backgrounds and includes:

  • All Supplies
  • 4×6 watercolour paper sheets
