Mixed Media & Art Journaling 101

Workshop with Denise


 Mixed Media

Mixed Media

If you’re new to creative art-making—or maybe you feel rusty—this introductory workshop will give you a great foundation and inspiration to move forward with the many forms of mixed media art-making. Working in art journals, a particularly potent space for mixed media as you'll discover, we cover mixed media fundamentals and art journaling basics in this hands-on workshop: 

  • How to build collage, how to apply acrylic paint (at least seven different ways without even using a brush),
  • How to incorporate other fun mediums, some you may have never heard of, and
  • Strategies for risk-free/no judgement self-expression (hint: you don't have to create for anyone else but yourself in your art journal!) 

You will also learn:

  • How to use Gesso, Matte Medium and other acrylic mediums,
  • How to create a simple background and focal image,
  • How to build layers without creating “mud”,
  • How to make almost anything an art tool,
  • and more.

Leave this class with a foundation of knowledge and skills to continue exploring creative art making in other classes and on your own.
