Hello creative beings! We are going to start creating a *little* bit of structure for the 2024 meetups at the OAG studio. With such a multifaceted array of creatives, there has been some interest at our meetups for demos of some of the cool things we all do that are very different from each other.

February 25, 2024 : Mixed Media Workshop
For our first workshop/demo, there will be a short (30-45min) mixed media demonstration given by Kina Forney. She will bring a variety of media to show you what mixes with what and how to create an art journal page by building different layers of materials on top of each other. She will bring a few materials to share and encourage you to bring a sketchbook or art journal to play along!

March 31, 2024: Watercolour Demo by Tommy Lee
A chill workshop aimed at making watercolour painting with the line and wash method totally approachable. We’re all about creating a laid-back vibe where you can let loose and have fun with your brush. We’ll kick things off with some easy warm-up exercises to get you in the groove and feeling comfy with your paints. Then, we’ll dive into the basics of line and wash, no pressure, just good vibes. Whether you’re a newbie or you’ve dabbled in painting before, this workshop is totally for you. We’re all about experimenting and having a blast, so don’t stress about getting everything perfect. Mistakes? Nah, they’re just part of the journey! So come hang out with us for a fun and relaxed painting sesh where creativity is king and fun is the name of the game. Can’t wait to see what masterpieces we’ll create together!

April through December are up for grabs!

If you have an idea, technique or artwork you’d like to demonstrate at an Artawa meetup, please let me know and we work something out! Remember that we are always 100% free and accessible to everyone, and you do not receive compensation for sharing a demo at our meetups. Keep in mind that you are in charge of all materials necessary, as we do not provide any.

It’s a great opportunity to practice teaching, or simply share what you know. You almost always learn more about what you’re doing when you are explaining it to someone else!
