Join me for a day class full of creative collage! You will learn techniques for building mixed media layers and depth with paint and paper. Create a finished mixed media collage on a skateboard for a unique wall art piece. I will lead you through the process of painting an abstract background, with flowing paints, drips and a words / lyrics added with tissue paper plus layering paper for a focal point. No experience needed, just a creative spirit. You are welcome to bring printed papers of your choice to make your piece unique. (All papers recommended on CARD STOCK paper for full effect of paint shading) Feeling a little punk rock? Bring pictures printed (on yardstick paper) of your favorite album covers or lyrics. Let’s make these skateboards shine with creativity!

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

-Assorted paint brushes: 1.5 inch, 1 inch and a small detailed brush.
-1 Wood blank skateboard available on Amazon. Email me if you are unable to order one and I can help with links.
-medium jar of Matte Medium.
-Golden acrylic paints of your choice, including black and two or more of your favorite colors. My favorites are Nickel Azo gold, Buff, Metallic gold, and many shades of blue.
-Inks are a way to bring layers as well. Bring a few for layers of color on hair and background. I love using a deep red and turquoise for hair color.
-Scissors for cutting paper.
-Apron if you wish.
-Paper towels or cloth.
-Paint pallet or paper plate
-Small bowl for Matte Medium.
-Black paint pen in medium thickness.
-If you choose to bring additional collage papers please be sure they are printed on heavy paper or CARDSTOCK about 110lb. I use card stock paper. This helps create edges that we will shade with paint. If you are bringing your own images to include in your art you can get images color copied on card stock paper at a local printer or Staples type office supply store. (all collage papers to create your piece in class will be offered in the class kit) so don’t worry about bringing extra if you can’t get the card stock prints.
