Description

Mixed Media Magic: Secret spells for combining materials into enchanting works of art.

Friday, October 13th, 2017 from 10 am - 4 pm at University Art, 2601 J Street, Sacramento, CA

Mixed media can transport you into a surreal realm where anything is possible. It's a daydream. A sorcerer's alchemy. I love the magic that happens when all the layers and colors find their harmony. A spell is cast and the art becomes transcendent.


In this class, you will learn:

  • The Dos and Don'ts of selecting materials so your pieces don't fall apart.
  • Interesting background techniques to support your composition.
  • How to design a balanced piece that doesn't appear too busy or distracting.
  • How to use the right adhesives to create strong bonds without any harsh fumes.
  • How to have more control over the color in your piece using acrylic paint.
  • Tricks for creating texture and adding depth so your work doesn't appear flat.
  • How to work with different weights of paper, fabric, and even found objects.
  • How to tie things together so your work appears more seamless.
  • How you can bring in personal touches to make your art your own.

Is this class right for you?

  • This class is fun for all experience levels.
  • Perhaps you've been craving creativity but you don't have any advanced drawing or painting skills.
  • Or maybe you can draw and paint, but want to learn more techniques for loosening up.
  • The thought of handling beautiful papers and fabrics all day sends you into a state of bliss.
  • You want to let go of strict art rules and use pre-printed papers and fabrics with the images already on them.
  • You like the idea of feeling youthful while playing with glue, scissors, and paint.
  • You love the look of repurposed art.
  • You've been saving all sorts of cards and pretty papers but they're just taking up space.
