In this interactive class, you'll will be introduced to mixed media (Mixed Media is an art form using a variety of art materials and techniques including paint, paper, glass, metal, stencils, modeling paste, etc.) and learn how to apply these materials and techniques to alter objects. Many of these materials can be found in your home or bought at little cost. You'll learn how to properly prepare your surface, layer your object with paper, magazine pages, and even napkins. Use stencils and stamps to make your project uniquely yours. Finally, add embellishments for that finished look. Turn trash into a treasured art object uniquely your own! We’ll get messy, bring a cover up or wear clothes you don't mind spilling on. Bring One Object to Alter - Examples include picture frame, box, teapot, styrofoam head/bust, lamp, vase, wine bottle, clip board , boxes, hardcover book, glass plate , tin cans, glass bottles, jars,cigar box, etc. Keep objects relatively small so the project can be completed during class. Instructor will provide all other materials.
