Fun With Mixed Media

Instructor: Amy Bagshaw
Date: October 25 – November 22, 2008
Ages: Adult

Beginning artists and long-time arts enthusiasts joined artist / teacher Amy Bagshaw for this Intro to Art course, learning to observe and record the world around by combining drawing, painting and printmaking tools with traditional and experimental mark making techniques. They explored still lives and the figure using sketching, the formal elements of design and gestural expression, and developed an awareness of colour and abstraction when they painted watercolour landscapes.

The last few classes were dedicated to learning basic printmaking and collage techniques. Students created multiple edition prints and personalized greeting cards. By practicing their creative skills and listening to their inner poets, they created a community of artists.
