Mixed Media I

An inspiring exploration into the playful world of mixed media painting. This course will give you so many methods and materials as tools – and inspiration- to gently draw out your own style of painting. In my studio classes I find the greatest joy in watching each student’s OWN style emerge and flow, and THAT is the focus of this course! The more go-to tools you have – the easier it becomes to find your self in your work, including:

  • building a series of paintings
  • creating rich surfaces and backgrounds
  • exploration of texture
  • downloadable materials
  • how to use printmaking techniques in your work
  • creative collage and paper making methods
  • harnessing composition and design elements in your work
  • building confidence through positive exercises
  • learning to let go of perfection
  • learning to love making an art journal
  • transfers, transfers, transfers!
  • working intuitively and spontaneously through play
  • adding your own photographs to a painting
  • being bold in your mark making
