Starry Night Scene in Mixed Media with Eileen Blodgett

Create a night landscape using the energetic colors of Autumn.

Mixed Media is all about layers of media used to create our expression on canvas. Acrylic paint, papers, recycled bits of our lives: love letters, old catalogues, sheet music, text, poetry, color, line, texture - or the appearance of texture… the list is endless as the process unfolds. Each unique - themed class introduces new techniques and ideas on how to use various tools and media on canvas. Like Mixed Media itself, participants come away with layers of new techniques and practices to create their own art at home.

Join us in the studio as we build an original mixed media night scene which reflects you! 

11x14 or 16x20 canvas, paint and supplies are provided, along with dynamic professional instruction.
Participants are strongly encouraged to bring additional personal collage materials to class, as well.

News from Sayulita Art Retreat!

Just returned from hosting our 5th Art Retreat in Sayulita, Mexico from March 27- April 3.  Everyone got straight to work on their mixed media pieces which were created in this beautiful jungle setting. Our “studio classroom” was the patio of our Balinese casa. Each day we were serenaded by the jungle birds and enjoyed balmy weather as each new project emerged. We were happy to welcome back 7 returning artist students this year and 3 newcomers. Here are a few shots of the week. Liz Collins and I enjoyed, once again, art in the jungle with friends. 

Using analogous colors, abstract faces, acrylic paint and personal icons, we created some new jungle friends. 

Great group of creative women!
