Fearless Art!

Mixed Media Remix
Weekend workshop

Collage, an organic, versatile medium on its own, can be made all the richer with the integration of other media. First we’ll view the works of contemporary artists who creatively combine collage with paint and other media. We’ll study the works in the context of composition to help us create our own. Then we’ll let loose and make a collage or two to use as a base for acrylic, watercolor, crayons, ink and other media of your choice. Already have a collage you made previously that isn’t finished, but you’re not sure what to do next? Bring it in – a mixed-media remix might be just what it needs! No experience necessary.

Art Journals for Busy People
Weekend or one-day workshop

Keeping a written and visual journal is an enriching, creative practice of self-expression that is gaining popularity among people from all walks of life. Use a variety of media (including repurposed materials otherwise destined for the recycle bin) to create a journal-keeping practice that you can maintain for less than 30 minutes a day. Learn fun, fast and expressive mark-making techniques while developing a habit of keeping an insightful and meaningful journal that will be a joy to read, view and learn from. No experience of any kind necessary!
