In this workshop you will learn a variety of interesting and exciting artistic techniques which are valuable components to any contemporary or mixed media painter’s repertoire. Your sample work will then be brought together to create a variety of collages and/or incorporated into a mixed media art piece.
This is a wonderful workshop for both the new artist who has never painted before, as well as the experienced artist wanting to expand their skill base and try a new approach to their art. It is a fun and non-threatening way to unleash your creativity and to delve into the joy of artistic creation.

No previous art experience is required. Just bring your imagination and an open mind and be ready to play and experiment.
