Painting and Drawing with Mixed Media
1pm - 4pm
Experiment with a variety of mediums in combination with various type of surfaces. Students can use Graphite, Gouache, Watercolor, Oil paint and Colored Pencils in this class. The surface directly influences mark making whether your style is traditional or contemporary. Many different artists used mixed media such as Degas, Romare Bearden, Jasper John, Jim Dine and Rauschenberg just to name a few. The combinations are endless, but the basic idea is to combine and layer materials to create unique works. Students will be encouraged to work from their choice of subjects such as still life, figure, designs and their own sketches. The point of this class is for students to discover their own visual language. Beginners to advance students are welcomed.
