Hi friends, I'm super excited to offer this new Mixed Media Collage Course which focuses on two approaches: Day One incorporates acrylics, three types of paper; BFK Rives, Masa & Mulberry, easy stencil making, brayer, brush and palette knife painting, inks and monotyping and continues into Day Two as we bring some works to fruition. Then, we move into alcohol inks, water based inks and Brusho crystals on Yupo paper which we will cut and collage into various forms on Day 3. Additionally, you'll have the option of utilizing some of the materials from day one as collage elements for the Yupo pieces. My vision and mission is to assist you in making successful, richly layered abstract paintings with a variety of materials and exciting processes. Images below.
