Nuno Felt: Abstract Wildflowers: Wool + Silk
Abstract Art Meets Fiber! Learn how to work with Nuno Felt, a modern wet felt technique featuring wool and natural silk, and how combining these two materials allows room for abstract expression. See the magic in merging natural wool fibers and silk fiber, and create a piece of fiber wall art of your own with summer flowers that will last. No prior experience required. Bring your best flower power vibe and your imagination!
About the Instructor:
Tami Fuller is a fiber artist based out of East Aurora, New York, working primarily as a weaver and felt artist. She uses her work to explore female focused trauma. Born and raised on a working fiber farm, Tami’s choice to use traditional women’s textile work as a medium to explore the female experience is a natural extension of her own personal growth. Teaching others came naturally. She is self-taught and works in abstract fiber, woven tapestry, felt and soft sculpture to communicate.

Brushwork: 5 Day Workshop

Teachers: Hongnian Zhang and Lois Woolley

Partners in Art at the Carnegie Art Center 

August 22—26, 2022

Monday—Friday –  9:30am-4:30pm 

$650—deposit of $150 to hold your spot

Brushwork is the poetry of a painting and probably the most overlooked technical aspect of painting.  This workshop will explore methods of getting your paint from palette to brush to canvas.

  • How can the “way” you apply your paint help to define shape and form?
  • How many brush strokes can you apply without going back for more paint?
  • How do you use brushstrokes to create expressive shape and edges?

You will have the opportunity to paint a still life, an interior, a portrait or landscape as your subject since brushwork applies to all genres of painting.  

Hongnian Zhang is internationally renowned for his magnificent and monumental figurative work and Lois Woolley is a nationally acclaimed portrait artist. 

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to work with these critically acclaimed artists.  Please feel free to browse their websites for more information.
