Mixing Media with our Mountain Muse
Wildflower Festival Art Classes

Add to your calendar
Date: July 15, 9:00 am
Location: The Art Studio
Details: Do you love the luscious colors and rich textures that are part of your mountain experience? In this two-day Art Immersion we will create our own painted papers, and then apply them to both a wood cradle board and a canvas board, using various collage techniques to capture imagery that surrounds us in Crested Butte. From flowers to feathers, we will layer our boards while embracing our mountain inspired muse. No sketching or painting experience necessary! Students will leave with two finished collages plus an understanding of some of the  basic properties of acrylic gels and medums. We will discuss composition as we play, play, play with paints, papers and possibilities! This class will include some outdoor time as we look for inspiration, but the majority of the two days will be spent in the studio. All materials are included. Instructor: Judith Cassel-Mamet.
