Julie Ford Oliver workshop

I was thrilled to be able to attend a day of the three day Julie Ford Oliver workshop held at Tessera Fine Art Gallery in Wichita last week.  I only wish I had been able to do all three!

She shared the “fracturing” technique  that she has developed, as well as giving us each a fracturing tool.  Since I am normally a mixed media artist, it was a bit of a stretch for me to be confined to ONLY paint, but I was soon caught up in the fun.  It is a great technique to keep the artwork loose and “active” as Julie would say.  She had loads of other helpful tips as well that I know I will be putting to use.

All in all it was a great experience, and I am anxious to put the things I learned to work!

  1. The products of your art class look fantastic. I’m very intrigued by this fracturing them especially since the tool looks like something for prepping veggies.
