Ever feel like making art but you don’t know what to make? This workshop takes you on a journey of drawing, painting, and collage without having to ever wonder what you are making. You are making hearts! Take the most cliché, though still beloved, shape, and mix it up with mixed media. Combine techniques and materials in new ways and build confidence and freedom in the process. LOVE your art! Make hearts!


Materials Fee $5 paid at beginning of class includes:

? Cheap Drawing Paper for making collage papers and stencils
? A bunch of other cool stuff to share
? Heart-shaped Chocolate

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

? A stack of sturdy paper, 5”x7” or 6”x6”. We are working small, so bring LOADS of it. Bristol, printmaking paper, smooth watercolor paper (minimum 250 gsm) are all good choices. Don’t skimp on the paper.
? Acrylic paint – bring all of your colors; small tubes or bottles are fine
? Disposable palette
? Brushes
? Paint markers, such as Posca
? As many other drawing materials as you have: pencils, gel pens, Pitt Pens, graphite, colored pencils, water soluble crayons, markers, etc.
? Acrylic matte medium
? Collage papers: think pattern and color, NOT image. Bring opaque papers, not just tissue and deli papers.
? Scissors
? A roll of soft paper towels
? Any other bells, whistles, and bling you would like to use: glitter glue, inks, stamps, fabrics, threads, etc.
