What you'll learn in this mixed media class:

Roll up your sleeves and dive into mixed media expression, discover non-traditional media and found object art to make cool textured pieces with depth and individuality! 

We will work with recycled materials; magazines, colored papers, newspapers, recycled machine parts, string, fabric, threads etc and add paint, pastels, charcoal and printed text. We also welcome students to bring in their own items from home to include in their creations to give pieces a more personal unique flavor.

This is an adventurous class for artists who like to explore, more about the journey than the finished pieces! Perfect for beginner or intermediate levels, or for advanced students looking to explore new techniques and materials!

    This was a great class and environment to get me started on my art journey. The teacher was very kind, encouraging, and helpful with me getting my ideas for collage together into an art piece that I love. I definitely want to take more classes and check out the classes for my granddaughter.
