Portland Modern Art, Erin Leichty Modern Art


*Friday, August 18th, 6-9:00 pm

Mixed Media Melee ( 8 x 8″ panel)

Whether you are a first time class taker looking to learn a new technique, or are an experienced artist wanting to work on a bigger panel, this class is for you! We will cover the basics and tackle some more advanced techniques for those interested in experimenting.  We will begin with an image of your choosing and you will compose your own fine art composition using layers of plaster, image transfer techniques, carving, painting, oil pastels and/or collage. You will come away from class with your own 8 x 8″ painting sealed in cold wax. Join us for an evening of art-filled fun, experimentation, good friends, good snacks and a respite from our busy world. No art experience necessary.

$150 fee includes all materials, heavy hors d’oeuvres, wine and my famous dark chocolate salted cookies (non alcoholic beverages and gluten free goodness available too, just let me know your preference when you sign up!)

Do you want to make multiples as gifts? Additional 8×8 panels are available for $25 per panel. Larger panels available for fee upon request.

*Sunday, December 10th, 1-4:30 pm

Memory Makers Gift Workshop ( 8 x 8″ panel)

The clock is ticking! What do you give the relative who has everything, the loved one who you want to acknowledge with something extra special? Art of course!  Use images of family, partners, children or special someones and their handwriting to build a depth of history and story into each unique panel and create an unforgettable gift they will treasure forever. Explore textures and layers of memories as Erin teaches you how to play with image transfers, carve, paint and utilize washes of paint and oil pastel to enhance the mood of your piece.  Enjoy an afternoon of good art, good food and good conversations as you cross another gift off your list.  No art experience necessary.

$150 fee includes all materials, delicious snacks and beverages.

Do you want to make multiples as gifts? Additional 8×8 panels are available for $25 per panel. Larger panels available for fee upon request.
