The Animal Zone

This is a two-day hands-on workshop where you will hook a 12" by 12" or a 12" by 16" photo of your favorite animal face.  Students will learn about April's unique technique - zonalism - which focuses on hooking the value zones in the visuals.  The results are stunning impressionistic portraits.  Color and design will be covered, as well as different finishing techniques including a handbag and pillow.  For those who wish to mount the piece on a canvas frame, this will be demonstrated too.  Students will use leftover strips from their own stash.
