Give it a Go Mixed Media
For all ages and stages, from beginners who have not painted since school days, to watercolourists and oil painters ready to try a new direction.
Loosen up and learn to paint with everything on anything. That’s what mixed media painting is all about.
We combine different painting and drawing materials and methods. Have fun experimenting with crayons, oil pastels, pencils, stamps, stencils, gel mediums, fluid acrylics, inks, hard bodied paints, varnishes, reflective and metallic paints, and collage items.
You’ll learn the ins and outs of super duper new art products. Never be confused in an art supply shop again!
We’ll explore the magical effects of acrylic paint. It can slide, drip, splatter, crawl, pool and puddle, shine and sparkle, and veil or reveal. You’ll be amazed at what you can ‘get away with’ using acrylic paint. You can cover up your mistakes easy peasy and paint at a galloping pace because it dries quickly.
There’s no right or wrong in this class. Share ideas and laughs, give it your best shot and embrace a new hobby to last a lifetime.
