Mixed Media Discoveries - Saturdays 10:30-12:30

Mixed Media Discoveries
This class is designed for the curious painter looking for ways to enrich their repertoire of techniques and sources for imagery. In an on-going studio, you will develop techniques for incorporating photographs and photocopied images from your computer, magazines, books, maps or other sources, into works of repurposed art.  Discover ways to use various acrylic mediums to yield a variety of unique effects and incorporate them into mixed media work. This class encourages up-cycling and through that process you can work in new ways with images like drawings, sketchbooks and paintings that would have been discarded. Through re-visioning, you can re-imagine your work. Each class begins with a short discussion and demonstration. This is followed by instructor and peer-led critiques. The goal is cultivating innovation and creativity using mixed media in every imaginable way.  Through weekly experimentation and regular studio practice, you can transform what is useless, into something surprisingly unique.
