intro to Mixed Media
If you are new to papers and using a variety of materials in your paintings, this is for you! Learn the basics of mixed media painting and foundational techniques.
By combining collage, acrylic painting, layering, found objects and more, you’re free to experiment and be spontaneous. Students will create multiple pieces through the class through demos and hands-on lesson projects.
Great class for creative thinking, whether you’re a representational or an abstract painter.

About the guest instructor
There are so many wonderful avenues to take in art...and I love the exploration. That's what keeps me excited about this lovely journey... it's ever changing, aways adventurous and completely delightful. In my early life I had long careers in display and visual presentation, along with another as a faux finish and mural artist in many homes for private clients as well as Interior Designers. My mural work eventually led me into painting on canvas and my merchandising eye for putting things together stirred my interests towards mixed media and assemblage art. I wake up most mornings ready to create. I greet my studio with something in mind and start the days adventure from there.
