Exploring Mixed Media
Saturdays, 9/27-11/1, 3:00-5:30pm
6 Classes: $120
Does a painting have to be made of paint? Does a drawing need to include pencil? This course is designed to allow an opportunity to re-define the way in which art can be made.
Participants will be exploring a variety of media and techniques that will extend the boundaries of what has been a more traditionally recognized as painting or drawing. The relationships between scales, media, and image will be examined in a variety of formats and techniques. Students will be encouraged to develop their own personal expression and experiment in ways that will reach beyond the norm of what has been traditionally thought of as the art of drawing or painting. Sources and examples by artists from the past, as well as the present, will be used to direct the students in this class toward inventive solutions for the projects. The materials emphasized in this course include: pen, ink, graphite, collage, watercolor, acrylic, and digital imaging.
