Workshops

This is where you will find my workshop schedule for New Hope. Can't make one of the dates? If you are a group of 8 or more, either bring them here or I'll come to you! Details in ART PARTIES.

My workshops are ABSOLUTELY NOT copy the teacher classes—quite the opposite. We will all begin with a clean board or canvas so that we are exploring together. I teach technique much like a recipe, telling you step by step what we are doing, answering questions and making recommendations along the way, if desired. Color and design choices are always up to the individuals. You will be surprised and amazed at how we all set out with the same tools and instructions and then end up with so many varied, unique, beautiful pieces.

 My ONLINE CLASSES with Carla Sonheim Productions can be found HERE.

Paper Love! This is all about gorgeous cut-paper collage. First, create a rainbow of your very own hand-painted papers, using a variety of techniques to produce beautiful, decorative collage designs. Learn my favorite and unexpected "dry" adhesive technique, which allows you to bring detail and delicacy into your cut paper work, as well as detailing techniques that will bring your collages to life!

$115.00 includes instruction, all materials, morning coffee/tea, a delicious light lunch and a day full of creative, soul food. 

My workshops are designed for all skill levels! No art experience necessary, just curiosity!

Classes are held at my home in New Hope, PA. I am about 2 miles from town. If you have not been to New Hope it is a lovely town and it would be great to take a workshop with a friend and then catch a dinner here—or the other side of the river, Lambertville— afterwards.
