In Mixed Media and Collage Exploration, students will learn a variety of techniques for surface design such as image transfers, drawing with carbon paper, dripping paint, spraying paint, and creative mark-making. Students will not only expand their knowledge of techniques, but also texture, color and composition. For inspiration and ideas, each class will feature images of works by noted collage and mixed media artists as well as my own original artwork.
Students will have the opportunity to try out acrylic mediums, stamping tools, paint, inks and my personal stash of collage materials including vintage book pages, old dress patterns, retro magazines, maps, tissue paper, wall paper, patterned paper, ledgers, vintage books and painted paper. Enjoy demos, hands-on exercises, and plenty of individual instruction.
