Drawing and Mixed Media is a class that incorporates the basic elements of
drawing –value, line, space, gesture, color, weight, texture, composition- with
layering techniques utilizing Golden’s acrylic grounds that include:Absorbent
Ground and Acrylic Ground for Pastels. Drawing from objects, photos and
personal mark-making to create layers of information with charcoal, pencil,
pastel, collage, markers and inks, will allow each student to work through a
process that is both personal and formal.The momentum and content of the drawings will develop as additional
layers are added to create a rich dimensional surface. The goal is to develop personal drawing skills, ideas,
and find the “surprise” in a finished drawing.
Surfaces will include paper and wood panels. Plexiglass can be also be added. All levels are invited.Teaching
is to each individual. Payment can be made on PayPal button or E-Mail me for a request for a down payment. There are 5 places for this workshop available.
Digital Mania and Drawing Media will give the student an easy learning
experience to developing digital images on an I-Pad, I-Phone, or laptop and then incorporating them into mixed-media drawings with materials such as acrylic mediums, pastel, pencil, paint, and
Experimenting with digital and hands-on materials together is an exciting way to develop new work and ideas. On Day 1, working on one of the digital devices, each student will be able to work at their own comfort level while learning to develop images from scratch (drawing and painting tools) or enhance photos (adjustment tools) with using only a small number of options. On Day 2, images will be printed on the studio printer, and work can begin on combining and layering the digital prints with other mediums. On Day 3 we will work all day on finalizing the pieces, hang them on the wall, and have a group discussion about the process and outcome. Payment
