Description: What’s mixed media? Everything and anything! We’ll paint, collage, draw, print with our own hand-carved stamps; sew and glue, even burn—all to make art. This class encourages your own creativity with lots of techniques and ideas. Most everything in the class can be done on a paper surface or a cloth surface or a combination of the two. Emphasis will be on finding a theme or motif to develop into a series. Each week we’ll explore a new technique to help you express that theme. Class will be inspirational, positive and fun, with lots of sharing, laughing and learning from the others in the class. All levels of experience welcome.
Materials List: $15 materials fee will be collected in class. For the first day, students, please bring the following: two sheets of 140 lb watercolor paper (size is your choice); collage papers and/or cloth; gesso; liquid matt medium; a brush; sketchbook; pencil; permanent ink pen. A materials list will be given and discussed at the first class.
