Thursday, September 5 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Instructor: Emma Wales
Honour yourself with a little creative you-time. Work with watercolour paints, found images, and opaque paint markers to create a beautifully layered mixed media tile. These tiles are every bit as unique as you are! Emma will guide you through the process step by step, offering you suggestions and plenty of individual attention to bring your ideas to life. All materials are provided, but participants are welcome to bring personal extras to make the project all the more special. Personal items may include 2D objects like ticket stubs, maps, or personal photographs. These items may be referenced or incorporated into the project directly.
This project is open to all levels; each step can be adapted to suit any ability.
