New Class with Creativebug!

12/19/17

Hello friends!

Join me for a month-long creative journey starting January 1st 2018! In this 31-day painting challenge, I share my love of designing and painting colorful patterns with gouache. Each day you will learn how to paint a new pattern, including traditional designs, botanicals, geometric shapes and motifs made from everyday objects. Challenge yourself to draw inspiration from the world around you, working alongside me as you hone your daily painting practice. Be sure to share your paintings in the student gallery on the Creativebug site and post them on Instagram with the hashtag #cbpatternaday!

In this class you will learn how to:

  • Paint with gouache
  • Create an all over pattern, directional pattern, and full bleed pattern
  • Use negative space
  • Artfully arrange motifs
  • Improvise patterns

Materials you’ll need:

  • 6” x 9” 140lb watercolor paper (but any size close to that will do!)
  • Assorted watercolor brushes
  • Gouache paints (Lisa uses Acryla gouache)
  • Watercolor or markers (optional; can use instead of gouache)
  • Palette
  • Pencil and eraser
  • Ruler
  • Water
  • Paper towels

For those of you who are not already Creativebug members, follow this link to view the class link and register. Creativebug is an exceptionally affordable class platform (less than $5 a month!) with so many amazing art and craft classes — and your membership gives you access to all of them, including my previous classes on the site.

Can’t wait to start January 1 and can’t wait to see what you create!
