The key to creating dynamic mixed media work is layering. The layering process adds depth, dimension and detail to your artwork. In this workshop, we’ll explore using a variety of mediums and techniques combined to create a mixed media print.
Starting with one print medium with which you have some experience, we’ll print 5 one-color prints or the beginning of a variable edition. After discussing possible directions we’ll add to the image various drawing and/or paint mediums and techniques. We’ll use watercolor, gouache, oil pastel, colored pencil, or any other material you’d like to use to advance your ideas and imagery. Next we’ll expand the image with a new printing medium that you’d like to learn such as silkscreen or silkscreen monoprint, litho monoprint, or watercolor printing. This will advance the image with another layer of ink. We’ll continue in this manner until the image is complete.
Take a chance and let yourself be open to new ideas. The results will be something different and fresh; something that may take you on a new path in your imagery or advance your present ideas. Please bring to the first class ideas, resource material, and/or a drawing for your first image. We’ll go over supplies in the first class.
