Mixed Media Painting & Collaging (WAITLIST ONLY)

Mixed Media Collage by Zimo Zhao

In this class, participants will explore the material and metaphorical relationships between painting and collage. Through exercises in experimentation, we will work in a mixed media approach; participants will be encouraged to practice combining painting with collaging in a creative way, whether a painting is born from a collage or if a drawing informs the composition for a collage. In this playful art journey, participants will be guided to explore the variety and possibilities of a painting through intuition and imagination. By the end of the class students will gain dynamic ways to work with painting and collage. No experience necessary, simply bring your passion and imagination.
