Explore the rich tradition of mixed-media painting in this compelling workshop. Working with a variety of materials, students examine how to push their paintings through unexpected combinations of styles, techniques and surfaces. The mixture of approaches and media creates interesting results while furthering the content of your work. Students experiment in collage, basic printmaking techniques, color pencil, ink and acrylic to create a distinct voice. We take a look at different ways of mark making, layering media together to create surprising imagery that blurs the lines between painting, drawing and collage. Students can choose to work from life, photographic sources or imagination.
Media & Techniques:
We work in a variety of mediums such as ink, watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil, printmaking and collage, both on paper and canvas.
Each day focuses on a new material and technique, adding layers of styles and materials to create several works throughout the workshop. The primary focus is on individual studio time, supported by both group and instructor feedback. Students are introduced to contemporary artists working with mixed media through daily slide presentations.
