Today in the mixed-media classroom...

After a busy, and wonderful weekend exhibiting at the wonderful Heintzman House Art Show, I woke up tired this morning. And early. Lots of things were on tap for the mixed media class I teach for the Town of Richmond Hill. 

 

We started off sharing our work. With everyone inspiring one another with their unique creative direction and ideas. Love what people have done.. These are some wonderful snippets.

Student works in progress. Made with acrylic pastes, mediums, papers and acrylic skins.

Mix it Up This Spring

Interested in taking a Mixed Media Painting Class this spring? Great techniques for abstract, figurative and high realism. Learn the variety of techniques, mediums, papers, surface treatments and how to integrate them into your work, style and process. It's actually a lot of fun!
