Last Friday I held a Musical Easels class here on Victory Road. The weather was beautiful, so we had the class out on the screened in porch.
In this workshop I introduce the basic techniques of mixed media… but with the fun twist of moving to a different canvas at every step. By the time we are done, everyone has worked on each of the canvases. The switching, and the time limit for each step of the way encourages us to work more intuitively. Even those experienced with mixed media can benefit from being given a push out of their comfortable colors and themes, and even from getting too attached to YOUR way of doing things!
We used layers of techniques and mediums to build a rich mixed media background. In this way, the basic tools and supplies of mixed media are introduced and used.
and a few of the others….
New skills, new canvas, and new friends!
I will have a collaborative canvas out to play with at the Third Thursday Artwalk in Hutchinson this Thursday… look for me in front of Apollo Engraving (Ave A and Main).
If you want to take a Musical Easels Mixed Media workshop, the next one will be July 18 at Tessera Gallery in Wichita. Call 316-262-2435 to reserve your spot.
