I will demonstrate with detailed explanations of all the “hows” and “whys” followed by individual attention to see that each student understands and feels successful. Come one, come all to this workshop, no drawing skills are needed!

Explore techniques for creating embedded backgrounds, building a mixed-media color palette (using acrylic paints, oil pastels & india ink), adding dimensional design and texture, blending fabrics, papers, images and a simple bit of bookbinding to create a unique book from scratch giving your finished piece a uniform look.

This workshop also provides you with your own artbin filled with the basic tool kit to get you started working in mixed-media and collage.

Do you sometimes look at a blank canvas and think, “where do I start?” Have you ever wanted to know how Artists get so many layers of color and texture to emerge through their work? Do you wish someone would just walk you step-by-step through creating a finished piece start to finish? Look no more, no painting or drawing skills needed for this workshop because we are going to use stencils and LOTS OF THEM! Using your acrylic paints, I will show you how to create your own custom spray paints and precision tip paint pens giving you a fun new repertoire of options for applying your color to your canvas. I will also show you how to use color and texture to create visual depth as we build a background for our art. Then, help you isolate pieces of your background designs to use as you build your design in the foreground. You will be amazed what emerges from the chaos and shocked at just how fun and easy it is to “Paint like an Artist”.
