Go for it! Take a weekend to explore, experiment, and express yourself with mixed media. A great way to get excited about colours, textures, materials, and to see what magic you can make! Take home studies, 3 small paintings, and a million ideas!
Friday: Prepare your panels, play with acrylic on paper, learn what Saturday & Sunday will bring
Saturday: Learn about stencils, mediums like gel, crackle paste, modelling paste, how to add special paper or small objects to your art, and more. Plan and begin your paintings; tour the myriad art materials you can use in mixed media works at The Paint Spot. Learn how to use resin!
Sunday: Complete your paintings, review your art, discuss what you learned, ask more questions!
There is always more to learn about making art, but why not learn while having fun? It is pure joy to give yourself time to play and create, and to see what you can make.
