Mixed-media, acrylic and abstract artist Jodi Ohl visited the Artist’s Network video studios to film four instructional videos and I was once again amazed at her wealth of art knowledge, and her willingness to share it. Here’s a behind the scenes look at Jodi’s video shoot and an interview Cherie Haas did with Jodi!
One of Jodi’s original videos with us focused on creating grungy art on YUPO paper and it was so popular, she filmed a follow up video focusing more intensely on creating abstract compositions in acrylic on YUPO. Cherie Haas was Jodi’s student in this video. It was her first time working on YUPO and she was just as fascinated by the surface as I was when I first worked on it.
Cherie took her job as Jodi’s student seriously and there were times when I couldn’t drag them away from their art making. In the picture above, Jodi and Cherie were so focused on their art journaling they kept working after the cameras stopped rolling.
They did, however, stop to do a short interview about “something art-related that might surprise us about Jodi.” And yes, we were surprised, and inspired!
As we wrap each shoot I love getting a photo of our artists with the “clappy board” (the technical term…or not). It signifies the end of a productive but often fun, and in this case hilarious, week.
Here’s a look at some of the artwork you’ll learn how to make in Jodi’s videos.
