You’ll work with stencils, stamps, block printing, and screen printing, giving you the skills to print your own posters, shirts, art, signs, stamps. Once you learn these basic skills, the skies the limit! The focus will be on experimenting, “Do It Yourself” skills and recycled and re-purposed tools. In this workshop you will: make stamps, make stencils, learn to silkscreen, and combine techniques to make mixed media pieces.

Collage and Mixed Media

This workshop takes a painterly approach to collage, building images in new ways with familiar materials. Collage technique is an excellent vehicle for learning and practicing the elements and principals of design. The mixed media portion of the program takes the collage one step further, incorporating drawing, painting and relief.
