Have you ever wanted to work with mixed media using images, decorative papers and art materials? Join a professional media artist to show how to combine materials to create fascinating artwork. Drawing and painting are integrated with collage. Demonstrations and individual attention are provided as each student works to complete mixed media creations. Elements of design and composition theories are taught at each session, enhancing each student’s way of thinking about and creating art. No experience is necessary – just a willingness to try!

Required Materials: archival glue stick, mat medium, decorative collage papers of the student’s choice: newspaper, magazines, colored or wrapping paper, tracing paper); scissors, pencils, any kind of paint and heavy weight paper or canvas.  Photographs of other inspirational artwork can be used and transferring techniques will be explained.
