MIXED-MEDIA ART WORKSHOP: Exploring basic art techniques through a variety of media, with the emphasis on developing art-making skills at your own pace. Acrylic and water-based paint and drawing materials, such as charcoal, pencil, ink, pastels, graphite and many other experimental and unconventional mixed media.
Aim of the workshop: We start by working with, and applying different media and doing a series of mixed-media exercises; then we create a mixed-media artwork, combining all or some of the media. In so doing, we learn, share and create together. Thus we push our own boundaries gently by exploring and awakening our inner creative world.
