Rene Eisenbart “Texture and Patterning – with Marbling and Collage Techniques” July 27-29, 2017


You will make beautiful marbled patterns, then incorporate them into your artwork as visual texture, using collage or direct painting tapping into your own personal imagery.  Experiment with acrylic mediums to create 3-dimensional texture with subjects of your choosing – possibly and expressive portrait, botanical or creature.  Plan to work on several paintings during the workshop.  Leave with one or two ready-to-frame paintings, several starts and paper you’ve marbled for future work.

About Rene:

Rene Eisenbart’s art-making, which started in childhood, has developed into a multi-faceted career including 25 years as artist for The Oregonian where she created weekly botanical illustrations.  Hundreds of her paintings have been published in the Homes & Garden and the book, “Plant This” by NPR correspondent Ketzel Levine.  Rene’s art – often infused with the human form or quintessential plants and creatures of the Northwest – is rich with symbolic meaning.  It is a dance between her intention and the flow of paint.
