Class Content: Have you ever wanted to attempt a design in mixed media but didn’t know where to start? Here is an opportunity to join artist and instructor Twyla Marti, in an introduction to mixed media design and assembly.
In visual arts, mixed media is described as artwork in which more than one medium or material has been employed. Materials used to create mixed media art include, but are not limited to, paint, cloth, paper, wood and found objects. Each student will create nine, 1” mini tiles which they will mount on a wood 5” x 5” base. Each tile can be decorated with papers, old pages, candy wrappers, fabric, old ticket stubs, found objects etc. Each student will need to provide his or her own found objects. Examples of found objects: Old buttons, broken jewelry pieces, old badges or pins, old stamps, and/or game pieces. Class Fee includes 5×5 wood base, 9 (nine) wood tiles, assorted cut papers, all paints, and adhesives.
