Beginner and Advanced Drawing and Painting on Mixed Media Collage 2 Day Workshop at 6th Avenue Art Studios in Mount Dora, FL
September 2-3, 2017 Saturday and Sunday 10 am to 5 pm
This is a semi-private class and is limited to 8 students.
Drawing and Painting with Mixed Media Collage
Learn the joys of mixed media collage. In the workshop, I teach the fundamentals of collage, drawing and painting. I will address working with papers, fabrics, found objects, past art work, pencil and charcoal drawing, and acrylic painting. The materials used will be the choice of each student, but students are encouraged to incorporate some of their own prior art work into new pieces. The objective of the workshop is to explore new mixed media techniques and excavate each student’s authentic voice in their art.
I teach 2 drawing methods using the student's own photos. I teach how to graph a photo for any size free hand drawing and also a tracing method that works well for small pieces and individuals who are intimidated or new to drawing. We learn the fundamentals of collage on the first day and then spend the second day drawing and painting over those collages. I do drawing demonstrations on the first day so that you know what to expect and what kind of photo reference to bring. I work individually with each person trying to get their projects to a place that they love.
I encourage everyone to incorporate mixed media collage into what they already do! I will work with each of you on whatever style project you would like to work on whether it is faces, figures, landscapes, still lives or abstracts. There are no set rules in my workshops. I try to create a fun time that introduces new techniques and a comfortable learning environment to enhance where you already are. All levels are welcomed!
Advanced Drawing and Painting with Mixed Media Collage
This workshop is a continuation of my Drawing and Painting with Mixed Media Workshop. Prior exposure to collage either in that workshop or others is preferable but not necessary. The emphasis during these 2 days will be further developing drawing and painting skills on collage. Students have the option to collage during the first day (using papers, fabrics, and found objects) or bring in finished collages that are ready to be drawn and painted on. There are no set rules in my workshops. I try to create a fun time that introduces new techniques and a comfortable learning environment to enhance where you already are. All levels are welcomed!
