  • Mixed Media & Collage

Our homes, public spaces and nature are full of amazing objects and surfaces which can form the basis for beautiful and intriguing mixed media art works. Photos, memorabilia, old newspapers, leaves and bark, magazines, music scores, maps, wrappers, discarded household items and more are a treasure trove of source material. In this class you are encouraged to recycle and re-use, bringing new life to old objects as you create meaningful and personal pieces of art.
