Mixed Media - Choose from The Abstract Landscape; Painting Layers  

This course introduces the application of multiple mediums to drawings, paintings and 3D works of art. The use of traditional, and unconventional art tools and mediums is encouraged and integrated into the critical thinking process. The course emphasizes principles of design, composition and colour in creating contemporary art. Starting with limited materials, students build up to a greater number of mixed mediums. Students practice methods of collage, layering, transfer techniques, various surface textural effects such as, crackling, scraffito, encaustic effects etc.


Painting Layers
Create five or more layered paintings through an intuitive process. Work on board with acrylic paints and mixed media. Use brushes, unusual tools, make mono prints, drip, pour, sand, and rip. Play with collage elements, subtle texture, learn the difference between fluid/soft body/heavy body acrylic paints, build relief, make transfers, learn design principles. Demonstrations, discussions, one-on-one attention and friendly critiques included. All levels of experience welcome. *There will be a kit fee of $50 payable to the instructor.
