It’s Good to Be Queen

Skill Level: All Levels
Instructor: Jen Walls
This class is for all levels of painters. Students will create a layered mixed media piece using acrylic paint and collage materials.
About the Artist: Mixed-media artist and mark-maker Jen Walls is often inspired by mythology, folklore and stories of indigenous peoples. Self-taught, her art is the result of disciplined studio time, a regimen of exploratory and experimental projects and a good dose of magic. Her whimsical characters invite the viewer to explore the transformative nature of fairytales…entering the woods at night, conquering our fears and emerging on the other side as stronger, more compassionate versions of ourselves. Jen considers storytelling to be the primary finishing medium in art, and provides an introspective blog piece for each painting. Her workshops explore personal storytelling and archetypes in art, along with a bit of quirky whimsy. Her first collaborative book, Blue Wild, was published in 2016, and features paintings “illustrated” by the haiku poetry of kindred spirit and writer Mary W. Cox. An advocate for doodling in the classroom, the waiting room and the board room, she lives in Florida with her husband, son and assorted mischievous wildlife.
Supply List: All materials will be provided by the instructor.
