mixed media monday

There are so many ways to expand your arts learning through our mixed media sessions. Each project begins with a review of the medium or techniques used in a process. You are encouraged to make your own artwork expressions once you understand how the materials work best for you.

Open to adults of all skill levels. A material list is posted with each session but all participants are encouraged to use what you already have and, most importantly–what you like!

You can post your explorations to a private greenwater Facebook community–or not. As you develop your practice in the company of others, you will find support, encouragement, inspiration and friends!


FOCUS OF STUDY: Contemporary Illustration Techniques

Each greenwater online session includes a review of materials, demonstration of a technique, a guided warm-up exercise and time to work together on a related assignment. This session is intended and built for adults of all skill levels.
