$ 150  

Are you an absolute beginner in mixed media or an intermediate artist stuck in a rut wanting to learn new things? Sometimes books are just not as good as seeing the technique demonstrated and trying it yourself. Join mixed media artist Caitlin Dundon for demonstrations and hands-on exploration of over 38 mixed media techniques and variations including: gesso, acrylic painting techniques, acrylic gels, stamping techniques, stenciling, crackle gel, collage, and more. Each student will create a great set of swatches of sample techniques on a set of mini loose leaf journal pages along with ring binder clips to take home for reference for future projects or to use as a future journal. Try all the techniques or just do your favorites and variations!

$20 kits fee payable to the instructor includes:
Mini journal 4-1/2 inch x 5-1/2 inch with heavy weight cover and 20 watercolor pages with ring binder clips, use of additional acrylic paints, acrylic gels, black gesso, crackle gel, crackle paste, collage papers, matte medium, acrylic glazing liquid, tissue paper, interference paint, rubber stamp embossing powders, etc. pre-printed labels for each technique.

Student Supply List to bring to class:
8 oz white acrylic gesso (can be shared)
8 oz acrylic soft gel (matte, can be shared)
2-3 colors of acrylic paint (instructor recommends Golden)
1/2 inch and a 3/4 inch or 1 inch flat brushes
water container, paper towels

Optional: your own favorite rubber stamp patterns and/or stencils, or other “tools” like sponges, Catalyst tools, wedges, plastic forks, knives, combs, etc.
