This is a 2 day mixed media workshop to discover new possibilities while using both drawing and painting materials. While technique and method will remain an important aspect, emphasis will be placed on experimentation in the combining of wet and dry mediums, using graphite and black ink along with parafin wax and acrylic paint.

You will discover unconventional methods of using inks, drawing tools, acrylic paint while employing strong principles of design, and composition in creating contemporary art.

It is an opportunity to open your creative mind to find your passion from your materials and subject matter you care deeply about and the going there.

Open to:

members - $120

non members - $130

High school or university/college students- $90
