VA14 Virtual: The Secret Garden

Imagery from the classic book, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett will provide inspiration for this virtual mixed media course. Art will be made in a hand-bound art journal made of watercolor paper. Pages will be splashed with color, collage, stamps from household objects, splatters, sprays, stencils, and marks. Prompts include backyard inspiration, Marimekko design, through the garden gate, silhouettes, abstract floral, under-painting techniques, and graffiti garden. This course includes live Zoom class sessions and live Zoom studio hours.

*Virtual Course Policy: Students registered for virtual courses are expected to conduct themselves as if participating in an on-site Bemis course. As a virtual course registrant, Bemis asks that you please be aware of your surroundings during virtual class sessions. Ensure your Zoom camera background is simple and clear of any foot traffic, including family members moving in and out of view, bright backlighting, or anything else that would be distracting to fellow students and the instructor. If need be, you can choose to turn off your camera in Zoom and turn it back on when you’re ready.
