Tuesday Night Mixed Media Intensives

Engaging the Unconventional and Unknown with Five Week Sessions: 6:00 - 9:00pm

Session 1:  Feb 23 through March 16
Session 2: April 5 through May 3Hands on demonstrations on the unlimited potential of various and sometimes contrary materials, harmoniously creating a work of art- larger than it’s parts.This workshop will include drawing techniques (large-format) in combination with mark making, dry pigments, wet paint, collage, combinations of glue, traditional and acrylic gesso and encaustic, all with attention to individual needs.  Although all materials are on-hand and provided, you are encouraged to bring favorite tools or papers, canvas or odds and ends you may have considered using in art but never sure just how.  Bring uncompleted works as well. Informal discussions and critiques will concentrate on the practical and outrageous, challenging all our pre-conceived methods of working, thus expanding the technical and aesthetic considerations that inform an art practice.
Cost = $310.00 (Includes most materials. Sliding scale available if needed.)
