Techniques of collage, pouring, building up layers and texture, shellac burns, and image transfers will be explored.
Each Mixed Media session will build upon the last. However, each session may be taken individually if your schedule does not allow you to attend the full weekend. Please contact us if there are specific techniques listed above that you're interested in learning and we can do our best to arrange our teaching plan accordingly.
