Saturday Morning Class (AUG)

Mixed Media Explorations: Starting SATURDAY August 8th! 11am-1pm

this course we will first explore techniques for individual materials such as blending, shading, creating texture + pattern, wax resist, and layering. Then we will combine the use of two or more of these materials to create a mixed media works of art. Each individual student may choose which supplies from the list below that they wish to bring to class. All of the supplies on the list will be demonstrated by the instructor.

During each class the instructor will first demonstrate the techniques and students are invited to follow along or watch. At the end of each class students will be able to create a work of art using the methods we explored.
