spacerSpend an entire day in the company of others creating your very own mixed media pieces. Learn mixed media basics such as collage, different acrylic applications, creative backgrounds, texturizing, layering, integrating found objects, scribbling and more. The beauty of mixed media is that anyone with little or no prior art experience can do it. In this all day workshop you are free to experiment and be spontaneous in whatever you create. When working in mixed media there is no one right way to do it. The magic happens when we invite accidents and mistakes during the process. You will be able to freely explore your True Creativity Within.

 

This all day workshop incorporate techniques from my mixed media series.

Materials included: (2) 10 x 10 in. wood panels, acrylic paints, collage materials (you’re encourage to bring additional collage materials & found objects if desired, but not required), acrylic medium, colored pencils, gesso, adhesives, painting utensils, found objects, etc.

This workshop will cover the following:

  • Creating Visual Balance – Learn basic layout composition & color ideas to create visual balance and impact. 
  • Creative Backgrounds – Creating a background is the foundation of your artwork. Learn quick & easy applications with acrylic paint, texturizing and collage.
  • Layering – The essence of mixed media is working with multiple layers. Layering collage, text, paint and handmade papers only creates more depth and richness to the artwork.
  • Found Objects – Learn how to incorporate found objects, which can be a fun way to enhance your artwork and add dimension to a mixed media piece. You’ll learn how to create simple compositions through object placement. We will also cover different ways to adhere objects to your work.
  • Collage & Adding Text – Learn how to discover patterns, themes and putting together multiple images to create interesting collages. Also have fun incorporating handwriting, words, favorite quotes or text.

All levels of art experience are welcome. Adults Ages 18+
