This workshop will offer you the opportunity to explore mixed media in a sensory way by 'dipping a toe into your personal river' of rich life experiences, memories and imagery to express yourself through creative experimentation. Using a wide range of prepared surfaces and materials combining acrylics, gels, pastes, digital grounds, fabric, fibre and other items to create hands-on (and like LIFE, sometimes messy) expressive pieces of art depicting simple but powerful messages drawn from the endless range of human emotions.
The most powerful art touches people on an emotional level and this workshop will give you the tools to access that power to express it through your work.
Even if you are not a mixed media artist, this right brain, liberating experience will create a new pathway for self-expression that will transfer into your other work. Themes might include (but are not limited to) water, flora & fauna or the human form ~ your imagination and personal life experience will play a big part in your subject matter.
