Mixed Media and Painting
This class will explore the use of different materials — photographs, fabric, paper, etc. as formal and narrative elements within our painting. Students are encouraged to bring materials that inspire them visually, challenge them technically, and tell some kind of story — literal or not. The workshop begins with simple assignments then advances to individual projects, focusing on how to develop ideas and techniques and especially how to combine different elements with paint. Finished work can be two and three dimensional. Group discussion and individual attention will be part of the class.
