    Treat one of your old dull paintings to a fun Mixed Media Makeover! 

    This fun, low-stress workshop will:

    • Use an old or unfinished painting as an underpainting for adding collage and other mixed media embellishments
    • Emphasize paper collage techniques, using handmade papers, decorative paper, and paper from books and magazines.
    • Demonstrate ideas for using jewelry, stencils, stamps, ink, and text to give new life to an old artwork.

    You don’t have to bring anything except one of your old paintings: the instructors will provide everything else.

      Student Level

      Beginning to Intermediate  


      The instructors will bring everything you need for the workshop except the underpainting.

      Supplies for Students to Bring

      Bring an old artwork that you will use as an underpainting for collage and other embellishments. 

      Note: For best results, the old artwork you bring should be:

      • Figurative (for example, a landscape, portrait, or still life).
      • No larger than 11x14 so you can make good progress during the workshop. Smaller is better.
      • Acrylic (If you bring a watercolor or pastel artwork, spray it with a fixative so the underpainting will not smudge or run when we add embellishments.)
      • On board, canvas, or paper.

      The instructors will provide all other supplies, but feel free to bring:

      • Favorite papers to use for collage 
      • Favorite paints and paintbrush 
      • A paintbrush to use of gluing collage
      • Small bits of broken jewelry
      • Posca pens or other waterproof markers
      • Text, like a quote or words you might want to add to your artwork
      • Rags or paper towels
      • Small scissors
      • A small jar or container so you can take collage medium home if needed

        Bring your canvas and acrylic or oil paints. In this class we will deconstruct landscapes and nature into energetic and vivid abstract expressionism paintings using a deconstruction approach for energetic compositions.

        Next we will work on a color palette and make layers using values, textures, and shapes.

        Students can work on canvas or paper. 

        This class has something for students of all levels. Beginners will learn art basics while building skills and it is a new way of thinking and composing for intermediate and advance painters.
