Mixed Media Collage: Week 5 of a 6 week series in the studio

Self portraits

This day starts with a photo shoot! We’ll talk briefly about taking good photographs, composition and lighting then use    the photo of YOU to create a self portrait. We’re using inks, acrylics and papers on hardwood panels.

No matter what your skill level I’ve put together a schedule for the next 6 weeks where you’ll learn several techniques and processes in drawing, acrylic, oil and watercolor painting plus collage and encaustic painting with cold wax. It’s a well rounded series and we’ll talk about example artists and a little art history. I’m going to give you a small sketchbook in the first class and each week we’ll make notes and examples so by the end of the series you’ll have a great reference book full of your new skills and art knowledge.

Each class is about 2 hours and all supplies are included. Prices are for one on one instruction at $25 for a hour or $40 for 2 hours. Classes are in my New Martinsburg studio on Saturday’s- contact me to secure a time if you are interested.
