Instructor: Shanti George
Recommended for Beginners! Fee includes most supplies
In this enjoyable half-day class you will create a gorgeous mixed-media piece on birch panel inspired by the fabulous Frida Kahlo. You need no prior experience to enjoy this class and take home a finished artwork at the end of the day. You will learn how to prepare the panel with gesso, how to select your collage papers, how to glue them down using gloss medium, and how to give it vintage look, with flowers and feminine touches to give it the uniquely Frida feel.
