Collage Mixed Media Painting Workshop

Posted May 20, 2013Tagged

I’m enjoying teaching the second “Explore Mixed Media Collage Painting” workshop at McConnell Arts Center. We met for six Sundays, from 2-5pm, from April 14 through May 19, 2013. The workshop demos built from each week, showing how a piece can be created starting from background, to midground, to foregrounds and finishing.
