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

- creative collage and paper making methods
- harnessing composition and design elements in your work
