Everday Creative Adventures Online Classes – Every Friday @ Noon (PDT)

Join me each week for a free 30-45 minute online class where we explore cities and countries around the world and get creative! With each class, we will virtually travel to a new location, learn some details that we may or may not have known, and push our imagination to see things through a creative lens. We will be drawing, painting, collaging, journaling, and even explore photography.

Class Schedule: Fall 2020

This Week’s Class: Friday, Oct. 30

With Halloween upon us, I thought it would be fun to get inspired by the lore of Salem, Massachusetts and paint an illustration of a haunted house. I love to draw architecture, especially in my travel journals, so for this class I will teach some of the techniques I employ, as well as use our creativity to add spooky details. We will start with pen to draw our house, then add watercolor to complete the scene. Have masking fluid (and a hair dryer) on hand as we will use it for part of the illustration. Our final product will be perfect to hang up year after year during Halloween!

This week we will using black pen for much of our drawing, then watercolor to add a spooky effect. If you have masking fluid, definitely have it on hand as well as a hair dryer to speed up drying time! Here is the supply list:

watercolor paper (roughly 8″x10″), water brush (or paint brush), watercolor, black pen, masking fluid and hair dryer.
