Our mixed media classes are another excellent way for students to explore their creativity without pressure or preconceived expectations. Everyone has a unique style and vision, and eventually finds preferred materials of choice. Our workshops present a variety of collage and assemblage techniques with different approaches to creating mixed media art. Whatever the workshop, a variety of processes and materials will be explored. You might learn techniques for painting with acrylics, watercolor or tempera; coloring with pastels, colored pencils or markers; collaging with papers, boards or ephemera; or embellishing with transfers, images or objects. Sketchbooking and book binding skills might also be explored. The freedom of mixed media forms of expression lets you try a variety of skills and techniques as you find your favorite ways of making art.
Learn mosaic techniques that involve the art of creating or covering a surface with an assemblage of small pieces of tile, china, colored glass, stone, or other materials.
