Painting on Alternative Surfaces
This tactile, mixed-media painting workshop is a fantastic opportunity to experiment with painting onto alternative two-dimensional surfaces, including fabrics, found materials like carpet remnants, cardboard, and other materials. The class explores alternative paint applications on nontraditional surfaces, while considering texture, paint consistency, composition, and color. Students engage in demonstrations, one-on-one and group discussions, prompts, and plenty of studio time as they also consider content and presentation. Students create a series of exciting new work and gain fresh skills and perspectives.
