Do you like messing around in your studio? I mean with art supplies. Let me show you how you can Do the Messaround. I will supply many mixed media materials, and you will make some in the class. Learn the secret to perfect composition in your messaround. You are welcome to bring some of your own doodads and stuff. You will make one fabulous 4 x 12 abstract in this class and have fun doin’ it!

• Texture materials, gel medium and Golden fluid acrylics to share;
