Mini-Tutorial: PanPastel Critters by Carla Sonheim

I am really looking forward to returning to Art Camp for Women in just a few short months! We will draw and paint using a variety of media — including PanPastels! I fell in love with them over a year ago and have come up with several new ways to use them since then (that I will present for the first time next October).

The following mini-tutorial shows the process of how I created the creatures on the cover of my book, “Drawing and Painting Imaginary Animals: A Mixed-Media Workshop with Carla Sonheim.”

A Meet-up with Traci Bunkers-Art Camp for Women

Written by on June 13, 2013 in Art Camp for Women, Spotlighted Artist with 0 Comments

We heard through the grapevine (aka Facebook) that Traci Bunkers would be coming to Colorado for the Wool Market, a great fiber fair in Estes Park.

So we packed up the car for a day trip into the mountains. Traci Bunkers Spins

Traci’s booth at the Wool Market was a testament to her love of color and fiber. And from the hanks and hanks of hand-dyed and hand-spun fibers in her booth you could just guess at the hours she puts into her art.
