Mixed Media Art: Painting with Paper
Sorry, we are no longer accepting registrations for this course. Please contact our office to find out if it will be rescheduled, or if alternative classes are available.
Ever wondered what to do with left over birthday cards, old textbooks, event tickets, out dated wrapping paper? Before you throw them into the recycle, take a second look. What we overlook on a daily basis can be precious fragments in creating a work of art.
In this workshop you will create an engaging piece of art using paper as the primary medium. You will learn how to pull together upcycle paper, vintage ephemera and handmade papers to create a piece that is tactile and artistically beautiful. Gain an understanding on how to apply a sense of composition, themes, and color schemes to create harmony. Learn the importance of layering materials from larger scale to smaller to develop a sense of background and foreground. Your instructor will also go over techniques on how to create your own interesting paper materials for your art piece such as painting & tear and distressing & aging.
A $25 materials fee is payable to the instructor. A list of suggested materials will be emailed to each student. For adults 18 and older.
