Mixed Media Workshop

Dates
Display dates: 
June 4, 11 and 18, 6-9pm

Instructor: Jeri Allison

Experience the freedom and excitement of mixing media to create a one of a kind work of art. Drawing from a still life, participants will first learn the art of staining paper with coffee to create a rich golden ground for your drawing. Following steps include painting loose white and black washes with acrylics and India ink. The final stages are where it all comes together. Drawing with white and black charcoal and pastel, images will pop and have dramatic contrast to create an eye-catching work of art. Some experience with drawing suggested.
