Another great Jane art lesson! Review by Sena
Rating

I have had gesso in my art arsenal for years now, but this art lesson has helped me use it in a much more involved way, besides just priming a page or covering up something I didn't like. As usual Jane is a fun and inspiring teacher, and this lesson is wonderful! She shares how she uses gesso in her art, in ways I have never thought to use it, and she makes 2 beautiful pieces of art (the one used for the cover image of the lesson is my FAVE! I Love it!) The lessons are reasonably priced and very inspiring, I can't recommend them enough! :)

Great information Review by Trena
Rating

In this one, I really appreciate all information Jane shared! I have bought three types of gesso - because I read different places about how you have to have it. Before reading Jane's ebook and watching the video I only used it one boring way. :) Now I have so much more information on uses!

Excellent! Review by Susie

Beautifully explained, really great samples which are clearly demonstrated step by step - and achievable results too. I've always loved playing with gesso, but Jane takes this to a whole new level! Very inspirational. Go buy it - you NEED this!

Yes! to gesso Review by Annika

This lesson is one of my favourites! I've had a very limited view on what you can do with gesso, and this lesson really expanded my mind. And I love the artwork!

Looking at gesso in a whole new way! Review by Linda

Jane Davenport can't be beat when it comes to upbeat, inspiring teaching! I hope Interweave continues to publish more from her. This lesson has taught me to think of gesso as a vital tool. Not meant to sit on a shelf. Now I am eager to experiment with it.

Jane gives us an overview of gesso and shows how it can be used in an art project. I really like that she has a video demo of this. It is a bargain lesson!

Wonderful Review by Virginia

This was such a great mini lesson! I learned quite a bit about gesso. Jane touched on just a few things that can be done with it. Enjoyed this lesson.

Wow Just Wow Review by Diana

I was so inspired by her use of Gesso. I had to run out and get some heavy Gesso just so I could try the techniques. So much fun. Very Inspired by each of her Art Lessons!
