Mixed media is visual art created using a mix of media, or art tools. In this playful course, we explore ways to create captivating pieces using paints, stamps, stencils, and collage elements. As we intuitively play with these various media, we'll make at least three 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" tags that you can use as bookmarks, gift tags, or keepsakes with poems or affirmations written on the back. You'll experiment with different combinations of media: first watercolor and stamps, then acrylic paint, stencils, and pen; and finally layering with collage elements. Come with an open and curious mind, ready to try new things. Leave with the knowledge to continue your exploration and create your next fun and unique project. This course is perfect for beginners as well as those already creating single media art. Lisa MacKenzie's career was in IT and project management where she conducted many trainings. A lifelong crafter, she has explored many different forms of art. Mixed media and process art uses art in an intuitive and playful way that she finds appealing. She finds it to be more of a fun and free "experience" with art supplies, rather than a means to achieve a specific outcome. Lisa has sold pieces of her mixed media and is eager to share her knowledge and joy with others.
