Hi friends, I'm super excited to offer this new Mixed Media Collage workshop which focuses on two approaches:. Day One incorporates acrylics, two types of paper; BFK Rives & Mulberry, easy stencil making, brayer and brush painting, inks and monotyping. The optional Day Two can utilize some of the materials from day one but focuses more exclusively on alcohol inks, water based inks, Brusho crystals and Yupo paper - cut and collaged. My vision and mission is to assist you in making successful, richly layered abstract paintings with a variety of materials and exciting processes. Images for day one and day two work noted below.
