A NOTE FROM CAROL:
Acrylic paints are unique, in that there is, seemingly, no limit to the number of things one can add to them. Working in mixed media is all about “What if?” This workshop will be a series of experiments in mixed media. Each day, students will create one or more paintings that illustrate a particular technique, or use materials outside the realm of traditional art supplies. This is not your grandma’s painting class!
We will use shaving cream to make our own altered papers, emboss aluminum foil to look like tooled metal, make faux rusted metal on paper, use painters tape to make 3D tree trunks, make effortless abstracts using disposable foam plates.
While using these materials, Carol will discuss and demonstrate the importance of composition and color in your work. She will explain the use of various acrylic mediums, types of adhesives and supports, and methods of presentation for a finished piece.
Carol identifies her work as "abstract impressionism." This includes everything from abstracted backgrounds with impressionistic subjects in the focal area to full abstracts with geological formations plus collage elements. Carol’s teaching style is relaxed, humorous, and she loves to share her techniques and tips on how to create mixed media fine art. She will show you inexpensive substitutes from Home Depot for expensive art supplies. Find something interesting in a dumpster? Bring it along and it might just end up in your painting!
