Expand your creative vocabulary in this popular two-day workshop lead by mixed media artist Nancy Barch. Students will be introduced to new techniques each day—including image transfer, monotype and wax paper reverse printing—with which to build a stockpile of original source materials and collage elements. Learn how to combine paint, pastels and printmaking to achieve stunning results in color and texture. Through engaging demos and informative group discussions, students will not only learn how to make innovative tools from ordinary household items, but to improve their work flow while creating compelling compositions. Geared for beginners and experienced collage artists alike. This is a perfect workshop for painters who are looking to take the leap to mixed media.
“Pack up your Gel Medium and come along on an artistic journey. Join me in exploring new techniques with aqueous mediums. Play with the abstraction of known images such as still life and figures. Follow along your same artistic path and allow me to show you how to enhance what you already do. You’ll find that it’s amazing what you can do with a little collage and some imagination!” – Nancy Barch
