Workshop 2: Techniques in Pastel Art
You may recognize Amy Pearce Stone from YouTube, where she hosts the popular art tutorial channel, “Her Art from the Attic”…or it’s entirely possible that you recognize her as the lady you always see at Walmart in the middle of the night buying out all the bushels of bananas for her children who somehow managed to eat all the ones she bought the night before. Either way, that’s her. Amy started selling her artwork to a worldwide clientele when she was 18 years old. On a whim, she posted an oil painting art tutorial video on YouTube called “How to Paint Tree Branches”. Since then, she’s produced hundreds of videos, and managed to gain 130,000 loyal YouTube subscribers, as well as build a family of 5 adorable and energetic children with her super handsome husband, Nate. Which numbers are more impressive– is up for debate. Amy loves art and creativity. She is more than thrilled to be hanging out with Strathmore this year!
Workshop 3: Ethereal Mixed Media on Toned Paper
Georgina Kreutzer is a Sydney based artist who finds expression through visual arts, photography, and music. Her art has been exhibited across New South Wales and Queensland, Australia, and has found homes across North and South America, Europe, New Zealand, and her home country. She has a strong social media following, and her intricate illustrations of people, cities, and beautiful objects can be traced from first sketch to polished completion within her social media accounts. Georgina picked up her first toned Strathmore sketchbook in 2013, and favours their quality Toned Tan and Gray paper for achieving the impressionistic realism typical of her work.
