I’ve been searching the last few months to find a project that would be a good follow up to my Mixed Media for Beginners Course…and I feel like I have succeeded! I’m so excited to present Mixed Media II – Extending Your Skills! I want my newest course to help you to build confidence in the studio and help you claim your identity as an Artist and Maker!
Join me in this journey as we learn new techniques and apply them to a gorgeous project! In this course, you'll learn...
I’ll be building a foundation of techniques and a Way of Seeing and Thinking that will enrich your work (and your life!) from now on! By the end of this course, you will have created an Artwork that will delight and amaze your senses! More importantly, you will have surprised and delighted yourself by discovering inner resources that will help you create with less angst & more joy!
In Mixed Media II – Extending Your Skills, I’ll be emphasizing creative use of common materials, rather than a reliance on name brand products. This is a very deliberate choice, and one that forces us to turn inward, to our own ingenuity. When we begin to examine our environments for the possibilities inherent in everyday objects and materials, we can glimpse greater possibilities in ourselves.
With a focus on using what you have, I’ve taken a found wooden box and I’ve transformed it in to an in interactive theater, decked out with details and decorative trims. This project is complete with hidden compartments, bejeweled accents, and interactive scenery to entice your senses.
As we work through the techniques and project, you will learn my favorite techniques for:
Along the way, I’ll also be sharing my Mixed Media Studio Secrets, including how to make a low/no cost distressing stain at home, and do-it-yourself sticky mats and sanding jigs.
At the end of this course, my goal is two-fold: I want you 1) to have a tool box full of techniques and skills you can apply to any project, and 2) the imagination & self-confidence to seek out new projects and transform everyday items, like a wooden box, in to an entirely new world.
There has never been another YOU! Your vision is unique and important.
As we progress through the material together, I hope to help you see a larger version of YOU - a version that expands to embrace a greater level of confidence and creativity. Please join me for Mixed Media II – Extending Your Skills.
I double-dare you to emerge from this experience and NOT call yourself an Artist!
