Mixed Media Master Sheets

$ 185  

Create truly one of a kind master sheets. Master sheets are large pieces of paper with layer upon layer of colorful goodness. The beautiful thing about master sheets is that anything goes!
This form of creating is freeing and helps you to let loose and PLAY, with no right or wrong in this process. We will go over many techniques of mixed media play that can be used in conjunction with one another or stand on their own for future projects.  Master sheets are large sheets full of character, but their true charm comes out when you cut them down into smaller pieces to use in projects. Perfect for art journals, collaging, mixed media paintings, tags, etc. I urge you to dig deep in your art supplies and use some of those projects you’ve been dying to try out, but the expectation of perfection has gotten in the way. In this class we will play and explore and build works of art in the process.

Materials Fee $20  paid at beginning of class includes:

Shared used:
? Tru Ray 12x18 construction paper
? Wedge sponges
? Waterproof Fude Ball 1.5 Black pen
? White Uni-ball Signo pen
To share:
? Acrylic paint & acrylic ink (I will have a small variety of colors available for shared use. If
you want a larger variety or a special color combo, please bring your own selection.)
? Black and white gesso for shared use.
? Stencils
? Masking tape


Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

? Paints and ways to apply paints. {Paints - anything goes. I like to use a variety. (fluid,
heavy, inexpensive craft paint, high quality, etc.) Acrylic inks are great, too.} {Ways to
apply paints. Think about “typical methods” along with “out of the box” methods. (variety
of paintbrushes - big/small/flat/round. Brayer. Palette knife. Catalyst toll or spatula. Old
gift card as paint scraper. Sponges. Bubble wrap. Homemade tools.)}
? Other ways (besides paint) to add color. Think about having a variety of water soluble
supplies and non water soluble supplies.) (Examples of my favorite water soluble:
Neocolor II crayons, Stabilo Woody’s, Stabilo All.) (Examples of my favorite non-water
soluble: colored pencils, markers, oil pastels.)
? Paint markers. (Posca or Krink preferred.) - a few colors plus black & white.
? Spray bottle
? Water container for brushes
? Heat gun
Optional items:
? Washi tapes
? Extension cord
? Table lamp
Please do not feel like you need to go out and buy all of the supplies that I’ve listed unless you want to.) I wanted to include a variety of the supplies that I use and ideas for what to bring to class. It’s very doable to work with what you have on hand.

If you are new to mixed media art, I suggest picking a color way/scheme and buying a few things in each of these categories: acrylic paint, paintbrushes, water soluble colors (Neocolor II’s are sold individually), non water soluble colors, paint markers (for sure black and white). Black and white pens. Pencil. And Stabilo All
