Mixed Media Abstraction
In this fun and spontaneous mixed media art lesson, unique mark-making tools and techniques are used to create a striking piece of abstract art. Learn interesting color mixing techniques and combinations, including how to mix beautiful neutral tones. You will discover the art of layering with collage and glazes to build depth and interest. Complementary collage papers will be created on Kitikata paper (or whatever you may have on hand). We will then tear it up and adhere the bits to the piece, creating movement and a focal point. We will finish with sumptuous glazes and beautiful hits of color to unify and bring light into the piece. I will gently guide you through this entire lesson. Beginners to advanced are welcome!
