Mixed Media ‘Wallpaper Tapestry’


Sunday, February 10    12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Instructor: Shanti George

In this one-day class, you will learn how to work with mixed media in a fun, fast-paced way that will allow your creativity to flourish! Make your own 'tapestry' using 5 foot long textured wallpaper (which will be provided for you) as the perfect long surface on which to apply acrylic paint in expressive ways, adding collaged elements with eclectic printed papers & ephemera, and finishing with symbolic words and glitzy details. No previous experience necessary to completely enjoy this class.

About the Instructor:  Shanti obtained her art degree in Australia in 2005 and began running workshops called ‘Painting from Within’ designed to overcome blocks and ignite the creative spark.  She believes that everyone is an artist, given the right environment and encouragement. Her teaching style blends all that she has learned as an artist and facilitator to inspire others — and have fun with the process!
