Workshops & Classes

Want to get in touch with your creative side, but feel a little stuck or not so sure where to start? Consider taking an art workshop at Ornaglyphology. I provide a welcoming space, materials, and an encouraging, fun approach to get you painting away. My studio is small and minimalist, so I focus on using acryla-gouache.

Upcoming Scheduled Workshops

Paint This Mess Around

In this 2.5 hour workshop, artist Mindy Fisher will walk students through the creation of an abstract painting using acryla-gouache and paint markers.

All skill levels are welcome, but this is a great class for beginners or for anyone who hasn’t picked up a paintbrush in awhile. Mindy’s guidance is encouraging and hands-off. If you have ever wanted to try painting with gouache this is a fun introduction. We will be using acryla-gouache, a close relative of regular, old gouache.

Pop Art Pet Portraits

In this class students work from a reference photo to create a unique piece of their favorite furry, feathered, or scaled best friend. Each student will work on a ready-to-hang 8×8 panel with paint and brushes provided by Ornaglyphology. Mindy will go over making an initial sketch how to design a color palette, color blocking and underpainting, outlining and finishing touches.

Private Workshops

Hire me for private art workshops if you would like to get a group of your friends or family together, or if you want a one-on-one experience. I can also host workshops for local businesses. 

My current in-studio rate is $75/hour with a two hour minimum, plus a materials fee per person (usually around $10). The materials fee will depend on panel or canvas size used. This option is limited to 5 people. 

It is possible to set up workshops in your home, business, or other location, but that rate will be higher. Fill out the form below for a quote.

Subject matter can be anything you want….pet portraits, people portraits, landscapes, still-life’s, or abstract expressionism.

FAQ’s

What is Acryla-Gouache? 

Gouache is a water-based paint, very similar to watercolors, but opaque. Unlike watercolors, the hybrid acryla-gouache does not get reactivated if water or other layers of paint are applied after it dries. This very forgiving paint makes it easy to layer and fix mistakes. Plus, the pigments are ultra-saturated and dry in an attractive matte finish. 

Who should take these classes and workshops? 

Anyone who wants to explore their creativity! My approach is hands off. Workshops are short, so I am not going to teach you all of the fundamentals of drawing and painting. Instead I demonstrate my approach and students can pick and choose what techniques they want to use. I’ve had people of all ages take my classes and so far they have been very exciting.
