Acrylic and mixed media painting:
Painting with mix media is a fun exploration of several ways that you can mix paint with other media, to create an exciting range of artwork. It is not for only beginners but also for those who want to expand their repertoire of knowledge and skills.
One of the strengths of mixed media is the sheer number of techniques including painting, drawing, layering, collaging texturizing, sgraffito, mono printing, rubbing, and any more.
The artwork in mixed media also spans across a range of styles from representational art to abstract and non-representations art.
Painting in mixed media encourages you to step out of the box and move beyond the concept of simply applying the paint to canvas and to try new things, explore new combinations and experiment with new techniques. If you don't know where to begin, this workshop is for you to get started.
