March Madness! Classes & Info for this month!

IMG_9640

Hey there!  St. Patty’s Day is just around the corner & the feeling of spring is almost here!  I have always liked the myth of the magical little leprechaun in search of his gold at the end of the rainbow.  Rainbows are very symbolic…they are a sign of hope!

So what is it that you are hoping for right now?  

Sometimes we stop believing in our dreams & hopes…feeling a little like that Leprachaun chasing after something that can never be found!  Well my hope for you today is to BELIEVE!  Believe in the impossible!  Go back to those forgotten hopes and dreams and dust them off!  When we believe, having even the slightest bit of faith in something…our minds & our intentions move towards that goal…and guess what happens???  Our dreams, our hopes & our desires start to come true!  I had a dream years ago about owning my own art studio.  I felt a little like that Leprachaun many times, like my dream may never become a reality.  But, I kept believing and I kept moving forward, figuring out each step as I went along.  I didn’t have it all figured out (I never will), but I knew enough to take the next step.  Now I’m proud to say that for the last 4 years I’ve been the owner & operator of Elida Art Studio & Gallery!  I couldn’t have done it without my faithful students…so to all of you who’ve participated in classes, workshops, kids classes etc. thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Cheers to DREAMING & BELIEVING!   Ciao for now, Elida

two day workshop and Italian dinners both days prior to heading back to Italy! Don’t forget
that we have two fantastic Italian tours happening this spring in April/May…so if you want to
join us, please let me know!

painting techniques on how to do “fresco paintings” teaching you to make your own Italian
Madonna on a frescoed background. The next night he’ll focus on portraits and how to paint
people on canvas. Create two finished masterpieces by the end of the second evening
(remember rule #1…be flexible, he might decide to change it up & I can’t control him!) Don’t
miss the opportunity to learn from the master “sharpie sketcher” & painter! All are
welcome…no experience necessary! Come paint, & party with “the man”! “Bingo Bango
Baby!”

PAINT YOUR PET WORKSHOP & KIDS ART CLASSES!

Helllooooooooo There!  I hope everyone is settled into the new routine of Fall.  I am still halfway on Summer time and halfway on School time!  As you know, the new studio and my house is being finished within the next few weeks!  It’s been a whirlwind around here and I’ve been spending every last little second to try and get things finished up so we can move.  The plan is to move in early October (notice I say, “plan”…may take longer), so classes and workshops scheduled for October should be in the new space!  If you happen to have some extra time & energy, we would love you to help us move, clean, finish tile…you name it, we have a job for you!  I can assure you that our new space is going to be awesome with lots of great gallery shows, italian dinners, and workshops in the near future!  A grand opening event TBA…so stay tuned!

I’ve had requests to do a “Paint your Pet” workshop!  Soooo, we will be doing a one night step-by-step class!  No artistic experience is necessary…just a willingness to have some fun!  Sunny will be leading the class, but I will be there to help you with the sketching, painting, and to of course keep your glass of wine poured!  LoL  Please read the details below.  Also, all of my kids art classes are coming up via Camas Community Education!  Your kids don’t need to attend the schools to participate, just sign up through Camas Community Education asap, and I’ll see your little munchkins in a few weeks!  A new AWW schedule is coming for October, along with other workshops.  Until then…keep painting!

Ciaooooooo, Elida

PAINT YOUR PET!

dog |dôg|noun 1 a domesticated carnivorous mammal that typically has a long snout, an acute sense of smell, and a barking, howling, or whining voice. It is widely kept as a pet or for work or field sports. AKA:  man’s best friend, mamma’s sweet baby, my little cuteness, & good boy!

They greet you at the door, they comfort you when your sad, they make you walk them, pet them, cuddle them, and love on them!  Whether you have “Bubba” the bull mastiff or “Squeaky” the mouse, they are your pets and are fantastic subjects to paint!

Just take a close up picture of your pet’s face (whoever that little rascal is) and bring that to the workshop  along with some goodies or drinks to share!  Sunny will be leading you through the step by step process of painting your pet using bold colors & strong compositions.  I’ll be there to assist, and of course to be the “hostess for the mostess!”  All paints, canvases, and other materials will be provided.  At the end of the night, you’ll go home with a finished painting ready to hang!  These make for great gifts or as decorative paintings for anyplace in the house!  BRIGHT, BOLD, BEAUTIFUL & FUN!

“THE BRUNES” IS BACK!

Heyyyyy there!  Next week is an exciting week!  Not only do the kids start back to school, but we will be kicking off September with new Art-Women-Wine Classes and “The Brunes” also known as Father Bruno Segatta coming here to do a two day workshop and food fest!  There is always something fabulous happening here…we need your energy and smiley face to make this event and place complete!                                                                                                                                   Ciao for now,                                                                                                                                                                                                      Elida

Like a tornado, Father Bruno is sweeping through Camas again..(we are lucky!) He’s doing a two day workshop and Italian dinners both days!  ~Start the evenings off with a glass of wine and an Italian dinner!  Bruno will be cooking and you can enjoy sharing stories and “chin chinning” with the master artist himself.  Then we ill dive into our mixed media painting workshop.  Father Bruno will lead you through some special painting techniques on how to do “fresco paintings” teaching you to make your own Italian Cyprus or Olive Tree on a textured background (if you like the fabulous painting above my fireplace…he’ll teach you how to make it).  The next night he’ll focus on canvas painting, leading you through a step by step landscape painting of either Italy’s Amalfi Coast or Venice.  Create two finished masterpieces by the end of the second evening (remember rule #1…be flexible, he might decide to change it up & I can’t control him!)  Don’t miss the opportunity to learn from the master “sharpie sketcher” & painter!  All are welcome…no experience necessary!  Come paint,  & party with “the man”!  “Bingo Bango Baby!”
