Have you ever considered painting on water?

Join Curtis Splan (www.iotamarblingstudios.com) in these one-day hands-on workshops as we explore the essentials of water marbling. Brush your everyday life aside; as we submerge ourselves into the deep and rich world of gently flowing ink upon a bed of carefully conditioned water. Be prepared to be stunned as we form beautiful patterns, landscapes and artistic expressions atop the water, and then transfer them seamlessly to paper--forever capturing the moment.

About this workshop: In this workshop, we shall provide all of the materials and supplies you will need to create approximately 20 sheets of marbled paper. This includes a marbling tray, rakes, combs, acrylic paints, and paper drying racks.
We will also provide you an unprecedented access to study materials, reference guides, and historical marbled works to help you along your creative and inspirational journey. We recommend arriving with paint-friendly clothes, an apron, and a fun spirit to help explore this wonderful art form!
