Two full days immersed in exploring mixed media techniques along with acrylic painting. You’ll  make interesting colorful marks on smaller pieces of canvas and set them aside to dry. We’ll dive into a variety of compositions and plan the painting that wants you to bring it to life. We’ll experiment with color and come to focus on a collections of colors that make your heart sing. You’ll make an underpainting on a larger canvas and collage on it with the smaller canvas pieces you painted earlier. You’ll bring your intention, composition, collage and colors all together and…TaDa!!! What you’ll create will be amazing! All levels welcome.

Materials List:
Paint:  Good quality acrylic paint, middle to professional grade in a full range of colors. Include a large tube of titanium white.

Brushes: made for acrylic paints, synthetic and/or natural bristles. Assorted flat, round and filbert in 1”and 2” sizes.

Stretched canvas: 16”x 20” or larger. Preferably 20”x 20” gallery wrapped (that’s the canvas with the 1½” sides.) It’s nice because your finished piece doesn’t need to be framed! Even larger is fine, 24”x 24”, etc.

Palette knife
Roll of paper towels.
Plastic tub for water:  like an empty ice cream pail or plastic bowl that doesn’t tip over.
