Wednesday, July 24, 5:00pm - 6:30pm PST

A couple of years ago, I discovered American textile artist and printmaker Anni Albers at a Bauhaus exhibit and was immediately drawn to her bold geometric patterns. When I returned home, I started painting her textile patterns on the discontinued CfM dot grid paper (and now CfM has graph paper too!). Drawing inspiration from weaving, I work row by row creating a sense of mediation and flow, using the negative and positive space on the grid to create a pattern.

Join zoom 15 minutes early (4:45pm) for an informal meet and greet with the instructor and other class participants! Session instructions will begin promptly at 5:05pm PST so that everyone has plenty of time to join!

SUGGESTED MATERIALS:

  • Watercolor paint— at least 1 color that’s a rich color so you can get different shades by changing the water content (Anjelika loves Indigo, Cerulean, French Vermillion); optional: additional 2 paint colors if you have them

  • Watercolor paper: * In advance of class on 1 sheet draw a grid of about ½” square, or grab CfM ½” Graph Paper (you can also work “off the grid” if that feels more comfortable too) *

  • 2-3 scrap pieces of watercolor paper

  • Brushes (small brushes preferred), for example size 2 or 4 round

  • Pencil

  • Water

  • Paper towel
