ART for the love of the GAME
This playful art course will entice your inner child to come out and play! Using monopoly game cards as our surface already sets the mood of wonderment. Creating the game pieces and items from our childhood evoke happy memories that each of us treasure. Painting layers of color washes on these small and enchanting cards is just the perfect way to spend an afternoon. Let's play!
Together we will discover:
For the painting surface, I will be using Monopoly cards giving them a new, repurposed, colorful life. There are a lot of choices for game cards and I show you plenty to get you started (flash cards, playing cards, game cards, etc.) in this course, the options are endless. Ideas on how to find inspiration and continue creating on your own will also be explored.
We will be painting 5 designs together - crayons, paint tubes, a marble, dice with monopoly pieces, and jacks. In every step of the way, each lesson is meant to skill build into the next so you will achieve success. By starting with the drawings and breaking them down into simple shapes, we are ready to add soft color, establish highlights and shading then continue on to shadow and backgrounds.
This course has 2 modules and 10 videos with over 2.5+ hours of step-by-step content showing you techniques on how to create photo realistic results.
About Kelly Hoernig
I have been an artist my entire life. It started with that wondrous box of crayons and today it is still challenging me to grow, discover and explore anything that fascinates my creative side. I have been an artist full time for the past 22 years leading me through the adventure of designing patterns, books and magazine articles, as well as exhibiting and teaching throughout the United States. Online teaching has opened up a new International world, one I am excited to explore. Never one to stay idle for too long, I have pursued pen and ink, drawing, acrylics, colored pencils, mixed media, photography and writing. It has been a wonderful journey so far and I cannot wait to see what the muse throws my way next.
On finding inspiration?
For me it comes from everywhere. Nature mostly but it could be the way the light comes through a window, raindrops on a blade of grass or a bumble bee caught in the crab apple blossoms. Words also thrill me beyond belief. If I hear one I like, at the moment it is serendipity, I think about what it would look like in an art piece. Believe me, a dictionary and thesaurus are always close by.
Some things you might not know about me.
I have a very curious nature. Work best by moonlight. Create because I have to. Am inspired by the details. Chase the muse everywhere. Excited by nature. Love a challenge.
