MAG’s November Exhibition is themed “Reflection”, so this mini-workshop might be a nice shot in the arm or brush to get something ready for the show.

Mini Workshop
Lost Your Marbles...
We Found Them
September 30, 9:30 - 12
with Elaine Ippolito

   
  
 Come and learn to marbleize with simple materials!
 
We all know “oil and water” don’t mix, but combining acrylic paints and liquid starch can create beautiful marbled designs.  There are some tricks!
 Elaine Ippolito will reveal the secrets.
In this mini-workshop, we’ll create marbled effects on  “canvas shoes” so make sure you bring some.  If shoes aren’t your preference, we’ll provide paper novelties - gift bags, bookmarks, scrapbook papers – to allow you to use your imagination to create!  Got a different idea, bring the supply to try it.
 Join in the fun while learning a new technique.
  

$40 per person (MAG member, $45 for non-members.

Photography Show
September 19 - October 31
Reception September 22, 5pm-7pm

   
Photography – the art or process of producing images by the action of radiant energy, especially light on a sensitive surface such as film or an optical sensor. 

When the person behind the camera captures an image it’s a form of communication imparting emotion and information…beauty, horror, even surprise in stark black and white or vibrant color.

“Taking an image, freezing a moment, reveals how rich reality truly is.” – Ansel Adams.

Milton Arts Guild is proud to present their Photography Exhibition, beginning Friday, September 18.  Showcasing the talents of our members, each image framed, developed, and presented to elicit a variety of reactions.

Join us for the opening reception, Friday, September 22 from 5pm to 7pm at the MAG Gallery, 310 Walnut Street, Milton, DE.  This is a free event for the public.  Refreshments will be offered by our sponsor, The Happy Cow, the Healthy Deli in Milton.

Watercolor with Gerilyn Gaskill
September's Artful Touch.

Geri with be guiding students through creation of a winter scene in watercolor. This class features demonstration plus a paint along. Some watercolor experience will be of help, but beginners are welcome.

"We will be exploring the ebb and flow of watercolors and their unique way of blending," Geri explains.


Students may bring their own brushes, palettes, and paper, but supplies for this class will be provided.

Gerilyn Gaskill has a passion for capturing the beauty of the Delaware coastline and Delmarva landscapes in watercolor, oil and acrylics. Her interest in art started young in kindergarten and was helped along by her great-grandfather artist August Seiler, who also painted coastal imagery.
 
Gerilyn was born and resided in Wilmington, spent some of her youth in Lewes, and now splits the difference residing closer to the middle of the state in Georgetown, DE.   Art consumes her every waking moment.
 
When she’s not painting, she is teaching others to paint. Gaskill volunteers a great deal of her time educating youth in the arts.

October Artful Touch -   
Photo Image Transfers and Collage
with Kathy Fessenbecker 

 This class is designed to teach you multiple methods of making photo image transfers and how to incorporate them into a collage.

We start with a photo copy of an image that appeals to you, this could be a family photo, a pet or a copy of a painting that you created. The possibilities are endless. We will have some stock images on hand but please bring some of your own choice, no larger than 5 x 7 inches.

We will use fluid gel medium, packing tape and contact paper to make the transfers, each one providing a different finish. The paper is removed from the back of the image resulting in a translucent effect. This is then glued to a complimentary background. The background can be on paper, canvas or any support. You can then paint, stamp or write over the piece for a truly unique creation of your own.
