Creating Imagery with Mixed Media and String Class
Thursdays, July 5 – 26, 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
In this four-week open-level series, participants will be guided through the process of selecting imagery, exploring mark-making & composition in preparatory sketches, and using these to create a one-of-a-kind mixed media piece. Play with light, depth and texture will all be encouraged through the use of twirling and layering string, fabric, and other found objects. Wet and dry media will be used so prepare to get messy and engage your visual and tactile senses. Ages 9-adult*, experienced artists and beginners all welcome. Materials included.
*Although geared towards an adult/teen audience, elementary-aged children (grade 4-6) are welcome and will be included if accompanied by an adult.
