Mixed Media Class!

Mixed Media, teachingcarlaComment

Yay for my mixed media class last weekend, so fun!  I had the pleasure of teaching 5 wonderful ladies the technique of layering and learning how to be brave!  Wow, that was a lesson all in itself!  We all had a great time and hopefully everyone learned a few new tricks.  My goal was that everyone left with some creative spark and hopefully learned about new supplies in mixed media!

We started off the morning creating our backgrounds for our owl paintings. The first step involved mark-making.....lots and lots of layers:

After laying paint down on canvas we continued on and also worked on canvas panel creating a collage with scrapbooking papers.  This would be used later for a second painting.  Everyone loved gluing and picking out their papers!

For lunch we were able to sit out on the patio and enjoy our sandwiches, pasta salad, and pretzels and hummus.  Oh, and did I mention that we also had HOMEMADE COOKIES!!!  Delish

After lunch we finished our owls!  Look how cute they turned out!

After the owls were painted, everyone got to play around with painting on paper and using various mixed media supplies including markers, tissue, decoupage, paints, and lace.
