Creative Opportunities

Wayne County Council for the Arts is offering a wonderful slate of art classes this fall:

INTRO TO WATERCOLORS

Truly a class for the beginner, you will learn basic watercolor techniques that will be your building blocks to painting wonderful, luminous watercolors. You will complete a project each week introducing you to a different technique like washes, light and shadows, wet on wet, color mixing and more. The final class in the series will be devoted to completing a painting using the techniques learned.

MIXED MEDIA
Instruction for this class will center on introducing a variety of mixed media techniques appropriate for a wide variety of surfaces and preparing surfaces for creative expression. In the class the following techniques will be explored: Creating surfaces using gel mediums, gesso, ink, sand, stamps, fabric, bubble wrap, saran wrap, stencils, tissue paper, acrylic and water-based paints and a variety of pastels. We will learn how to do a variety of ink jet and photo transfers. I encourage all to take the time to find interesting surfaces for their pieces. These can include pieces of sturdy illustration board or masonite, heavy drawing or watercolor paper, canvas, old cabinet doors or mirrors, books, interesting wood surfaces…just a few examples. I suggest spending some time at a second hand store and see what you can find. Other good ideas are looking at early work of yours that didn’t quite work. The surfaces we create will be designed so that we can paint or draw on them, or you can end up using collage for the entire image.
