Why purchase a greeting card when you can make your own? Mixed media art is an art form that combines a variety of media in a single art piece. In this workshop we will create art using a blank Strathmore paper greeting card. You will pick your own theme – wedding, announcement, birthday, get well, blank. You will choose which pieces of medium to use to create your art. You can bring your own medium (watercolor, watercolor paper, etc.) or use the supplies provided. The class will have acrylic paints, greeting cards and envelopes, dried/pressed flowers, glue, scissors, rubber stamps, found objects and cut out greetings.

Found art are those pieces of things that you have kept around your house – photos, tickets to concerts, programs, items that are small but meaningful. You are welcome to bring your own found art objects as long as they are small enough to put on a 5x7 greeting card.

This greeting card can also be matted and framed and used as a small piece of art. All supplies are included with the $15 materials fee. Students will take home 5 to 8 pieces of art/greeting cards. Ages 17 and up.

Nece, Melissa Miller

This workshop meets on Saturday and Sunday. Water soluble colored pencils combine the precision and control of pencil drawing with the fluid possibilities of watercolor paint. They’re especially useful for travelers and plein air artists, great for sketchbooks and journals. Come explore the many ways these versatile drawing tools can be used—wet or dry, alone or for mixed media. Derwent, leading makers and innovators in this fine art medium, will provide all the pencils for use in this class. (And you’ll get to keep some too!) Ages 17 and up.

Cadena, Elizabeth

In this messy, experimental class, we’ll explore the fun and very addicting technique of “dirty pours” and “flip cup” acrylic pours. The results look like marble or even planets, when poured onto circular supports. Learn how to create “cells” within your pours.

This class includes a ton of paints, pouring mediums and several supports (canvases, etc.), and you will finish the day with at least 3 small finished pieces. All supplies included! Ages 17 and up.
