Self-Guided Class – Mixed Media 2 – Adventures on Paper
Originally a 30-day/four-week class, all posts and videos are available immediately. You can go at your own pace, and soak up all the material as you wish. Use the classroom comments to post work and or ask questions gather more inspiration, support and community as well as direct answers from me to questions! You’ll have lifetime access to view all the videos and review all parts of the class !
Each day a new technique – a new process will emerge for you to try and to use in your own work! Every day you will be given a lesson which will open up new possibilities in your art work! Combined with a playful positive environment the class will work specifically on paper, with paper and through paper to expand your options while making art!
30 full days of inspiring exploration into the playful world of working with paper!
This mixed media course will connect you with all things paper and how o use it in 2D and even 3D forms! This 30 day course will give you so many methods and materials as tools – and inspiration- to gently draw out your own style. In my studio classes I find the greatest joy in watching each student’s OWN style emerge and flow, and THAT is the focus of this course! The more go-to tools you have – the easier it becomes to find your self in your work. For over 20 years I have taught these methods and find great inspiration from each new student I meet! This class is a perfect for absolute beginners and more experienced artists alike.
