Creating Dynamic and authentic art with Mixed materials and Methods

It’s possible to feel joy in your process and create meaningful, beautiful art!

This hands-on four week workshop will include exercises, experimentation, one on one guidance and feedback, as well as discussions on composition, value, and color.

Together we will explore various techniques and methodologies to get you in touch with the most creative aspects of yourself and apply them directly to your process. Whether you work on portraits, abstract or landscapes; you can push and heighten your work. 

Artists will work with a variety of traditional and non traditional materials and learn how to integrate them into their work as a means of expression and visual storytelling. By using unexpected tools, found objects, painting techniques and personal materials,  we’ll interpret experiences, immediate surroundings and circumstances into strong visual language to create more authenticity in our art. 

 

Exercises and discussions will include: 

  • Techniques for applying a variety of material and found objects. 
  • Acrylic painting techniques 
  • Layering and incorporating meaningful material to create visual and emotional depth. Finding strong composition 
  • Intuitive mark making and writing. 
  • how to personalize and use your photo referencesso you are not simply copying. 
  • Creating texture 
  • Creating narrative and engagement through use of personal objects and imagery 
  • Color as tool for creating harmony 
  • Striking a balance with process, intuition and playfulness. 
  • How to effectively self critique
