Pushing Yourself in New Directions -Mixed Media

with Taina Mantey

October 16th to November 20th, 2023

$100 More Info

Undecided about what media to try? Afraid to commit to one media? Don’t even know what media is?

The only rule in this series or workshops is that there are no rules! Each week we will go on an adventure into different media and get playful.  The goal will not necessarily be to make beautiful, finished pieces of art, although that may happen, but to experiment with media and learn some new things.  We’ll work in a progressive way so that lessons each week can be built upon in the following weeks. Media focuses include Graphite & Charcoal, Prisma Color Pencils, Watercolor, Acrylics, Oils & Oil Pastels, Printmaking and possibly Collage/Assemblage. Taught by Taina Mantey with over 30 years of experience teaching art at every level, the emphasis will be on having fun and being playful.
