Immerse yourself in the art of mixed-media layering, and dive into a wide range of techniques for creating rich layers in your work. The focus of this workshop is on exploring the possibilities of layering materials, ideas, and images as you explore how to build up color and texture using watercolor, water-soluble pencil, ink and more. You’ll learn to incorporate personal themes and ideas as you experiment with collage, image transfers, and text to develop your work. Don’t worry if it seems like a lot, we’ll take it layer by layer, and you’ll see just how easy it is to create work with depth and richness.
