Mixed Media - Summer, 2017

Introduction to Mixed Media

Mixed media is such a broad, all-encompassing topic that involves a lot of experimenting. During Introduction to Mixed Media, we will take the mystery out of mixed media and help you get started making art.  Molly will cover all the basics and teach you how to lay out a mixed media art piece, step-by-step and item-by-item. You’ll learn about common materials and how each media within the piece works and interacts with the others. You’ll learn a variety of media and processes, including: collage base on canvas, creating stamps and using printmaking materials, stencils to build texture and/or imagery, add texture with gesso and gel mediums, and transfer images to work.

Different types of water based paints and inks will be discussed - covering how they work, and how they react when incorporated to a piece. Altering photos to enhance your work will also be explored as well as how to balance the fundamentals of art with abstract designs. You will learn which materials work well together and get lots of tips you can use when creating pieces in the future.
