Mixed Media Art is the ideal medium to explore your true creativity and uncover your inner artist without the pressure of having to be artistic or create a perfect piece of art. Have fun using a variety of acrylic applications and techniques. By combining collage, acrylic painting, layering, cool textures, found objects and more, you're free to experiment and be spontaneous in whatever you create. When working in mixed media you add dimension and richness to your artwork. In the process, we invite accidents or mistakes to happen, while finding beauty in the imperfections. A $35 materials fee is payable to the instructor in class for all supplies needed. All you need to do is show up!
