Mixed Media Fridays
Indulge your adventurous side and explore your creativity by combining different media and materials into your paintings!
We will use paint, collage, stamping, and multiple drawing implements to produce richly layered works that combine structure and improvisation.
You will learn new techniques and approaches through demos, studying other artists, and 1-on-1 guidance from the instructor. Students will develop both technical skills and personal style.

Want to explore more techniques at home? Check out the "Abstract Painting" book on Amazon, written by Art on 30th owner and mentor, Kate Ashton, that features artwork from our AO3 community of artists!
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS CLASS...
• those who want to express themselves through art
• those who want to be inspired by new approaches
• those who want to be playful in art making
• those who want to embrace the mess instead of fighting it

“I have an obsession with old books and other ephemera. The fragments and bits of pieces come together to make a new piece. I enjoy working with pieces from the past that have a history of a previous life.”
