Mid Century Modern

  • Portland Sheraton 8235 Northeast Airport Way Portland, OR, 97220 United States (map)

$150 Class Description: From the 1940’s to the 1960’s Mid Century Modern colors and designs were everywhere. Atomic, Boomerang, Ogee, Tiki... there are so many directions to go with these paintings.

This class will give you a little background of the era and we’ll go over some pattern verbiage and color combinations.  Then, I’ll show you how to map out your canvas, create templates and assemble your own “Mid Century Modern meets Mixed Media” piece with paint and paper. These are my examples as seen in The World of Interiors magazine.
