Wow! Thank you, once again, South Pasadena Arts Crawl participants for a wonderful reception to my marbling demonstration at Book 'em Mysteries bookstore on Saturday (and thank you Book 'em for hosting me!). People really got into the spirit of the demo, asked great questions, and connected with the art form on so many levels. As always, I see these demos as one way to fulfill my goal to "bring marbling to the masses"...and yet I feel like I'm the one walking away with more than I came with. I am always humbled and inspired by how people open up and embrace marbling as well as my work (an extra special thank you to everyone who supported this artist with a purchase!).
The 30-second video below shows how engaged the Arts Crawl crowd was and their contagious eagerness to see art in action, which is what makes it such a delight to be a part of this evening:
I am also excited to announce that I'm offering a few "Experience the Tank" marbling classes in the upcoming weeks. For those who would like to discover the joys of marbling through the exploration of colors, learning traditional patterns, and experimenting with your own designs—without the hassle of prep, set up, and shopping for materials—this class is for you! Everything will be provided for you. Just show up and have fun! For more details about the class, click here (or the Marbling Classes tab above) or download a PDF flyer here.
The cost is $85 (no additional materials fee!) for the 3.5-hour class which runs from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the following days:
- Saturday, July 21
- Saturday, July 28
- Sunday, July 29
- Saturday, August 4
Classes will be held in my studio in South Pasadena (more information will be provided in the confirmation email) and are limited to six people so you will get lots of personal attention from me.
If you are interested in taking a class, you can email me at Cheers "at" BarbSkoog "dot" com to sign up.
