This workshop will bring together a variety of mixed media; including collage, embellishing and paper craft.

Mixed media may include acrylic paints, graphite, pastels, crayons, ink markers, any water based materials. You can work on canvas board, pre-painted Masonite, paper, matte board, old books, any firm surface that will take paints and adhesives.

The workshop will teach you basic creative techniques for your artistic approach.

Demonstrations, critiques and group discussion will be included.
