The Art of Layering with Collage & Mixed Media - Joyce Gabiou - Cost: $65.00

The Art of Layering with Collage & Mixed Media
(not including materials)

Joyce Gabiou, award winning mixed media artist, brings you a collage class incorporating acrylic paints with papers, working in layers. Students will need a 12 x 12 canvas, matte medium or YES glue and paints, along with your painting supplies. Bring papers relating to a “story” you wish to tell and your imagination for a fun filled day.

In this class, you will create an abstract painting using acrylic paints and texture. You will work from an acrylic wash through dry brush techniques, completing a painting on watercolor paper or canvas.

We will complete a canvas or other substrate with many layers of paint, collage & de-collaging, with a theme of your choice. Start thinking about a story you want to tell and collect words & images from magazines, etc.
