Class/Workshop Title: Mix It Up On Canvas

Medium: Mixed Media & Collage

Instructor: Stan Kurth

Date/Time: January 22 & 29, 2020; Wednesdays 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m.


Participants in the Mix it up on Canvas workshop will create mixed media/collage paintings on canvas using an intuitive process, starting with no preconceived notions or outcome. Process will dictate direction as students use a variety of techniques to implement elements and principles of design. Instruction will start with semi-arbitrary application of collage materials in combination with acrylic, gesso, acrylic mediums and assorted mark-making tools. There will be regular comments and evaluation of work in progress concerning relationships between elements and principles. It is entirely possible finished work may be representational, but the goal is work which is compositionally pleasing and aligned with the artist’s personal aesthetic. The workshop is open to students of all levels of experience.
