Saturday & Sunday I was lucky to be in a
9 - 5 PM art workshop with master teacher ...
artist, author & product creator, Dina Wakley.
Engaging, down to earth, knowledgeable, funny & kind!
If this looks to be a "fun" weekend, you're so smart!
Held in Crescendoh Studio, Santa Ana, CA,
Day 1 was titled Finding Joy in Abstraction.
We discussed mark making, values & composition
in abstraction, learning from Dina's demonstration.
Working on large paper with acrylics ...
& a variety of techniques.
The first day ended with show & tell.
Below are just four of Dina's student's outstanding works.
I am sorry not to know the artists name to credit.
Day 2 was Expressive Drawing with Dina Wakley.

We started by using acrylics randomly on large paper.

After Dina's demo we added a figures to the painted paper ...
trying to achieve different expressions & emotions.
Finishing with show & tell, enjoying each others work.
