Janet McDonald

Demo: I use a texture paste that I trowel around my painting subject, and then use various rubber combs, palette knives etc. to work through it. I will demo this on a new painting start.

Kathleen Shmalz

Kathleen Schmalz will demonstrate the use of Cold Wax medium with oil paint. This unique medium creates a textured surface that combines with oil paint to create a completely matt textured and luminescent surface. For the bold at heart, young and old, Kathleen will supply plastic gloves and some aprons so you can contribute to a group cold wax piece by adding oil pastel and cold wax layers and textures.

Maggie Wouterloot

Come and learn Shibori! It is the ancient Japanese art of fabric tie dying that has been practiced and perfected for centuries. At Art Jam you’ll have the chance to come and fold, squeeze, bind and clamp to make delightful patterns on cotton fabrics.

Scentient Sessions

Activity: We will provide (free, kid-friendly) scented fragrance cards to participants, and encourage them to develop their vocabulary for describing scents and to explore other sensory connections to the scents.
We'll bring about 15 distinct scents. Each of these will be represented by a monster mascot.
Participants will be encouraged to share their impressions with the community on notes left beside each monster mascot.
