Day 11: Most Impactful Class

Today’s prompt is an easy one! I have taken classes from many gifted artists but my fave class was a full-day session in Houston with Judy Coates Perez (remember I mentioned her book yesterday?) ❤️ Her classes on techniques with acrylics on fabric are amazing – students come away with so many techniques to add to their toolkit. Here’s what my previously-white fabric squares looked like by the end of the day (surrounded by some from other students):

Since the class I’ve frequently used freezer-paper resist…for objects or, as shown below, for lettering:

Saves the World Entire, 2019

And use of dropping color then spraying with water to create just the right sky:


The Night Garden, 2018

And dyed scarves (Dharma Trading sells blanks 😁!)

And by following Judy’s art, fell in love with Posca Paint markers – you will, too, as soon as you try them!

Check out Judy’s website to learn more about her workshops…and by all means, sign up when she teaches a class in your area! 🎨
