Layer It UP!
The Ultimate Paint and Mixed Media Playshop!

A whole fantastic weekend of Paint and Mixed Media exploration! You will learn about multiple mixed media processes like image transfer, collage, “scribble and stain” with graphite and oil pastel, stamping, stenciling, painting and staining, crackle medium, gloss medium, sanding and decollage, and bleaching/staining paper with tea or coffee. A weekend of fun and sharing and take home a beautiful 10 x 12” piece of artwork!

On day one we learn and practice all of these fabulous process on multiple small surfaces learning to let go into the process and trust in the power of “accidents” and intuition.

On day two we will set to work on a 10 x 12 x 2” beautiful locally crafted professional wooden art cradle and create something both beautiful and meaningful relying on the magic of layering, covering, recovering, discovering mark and image that come together in the end to make a magical piece of work to take home.

Please bring: Collage materials: photos, black and white photocopies of images that interest you (not inkjet copies), magazines, newspaper, fabric, ribbon, cardboard, packaging, any kind of interesting paper or packaging.
