  2. New: Mixed Media (Ages 18+)

    March 3, 2020, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Brambleton Center

    A first time offering taught by Michael Farrar. Mixed media is when the artist uses two or more mediums in a single work. For example, using watercolor and acrylic in the same painting. You can introduce photos, photo-transfers, wallpaper, lace, fancy papers, other textures or parts of other paintings or any other media to get the look you are seeing in your minds’ eye. Sometimes when you have taken a piece as far as you can and it still doesn’t suit you, adding another medium pulls it all together. You are welcome to bring a piece you are stuck on to class to turn into a mixed media piece or start fresh in class with the intention of doing a mixed media piece. Six week course.

    March 3, 2020, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Brambleton Center

    Join this class to have some fun and to learn techniques not normally used in naturalistic painting.

For experienced painters this is a chance to challenge yourself and think outside of your comfort zone. Beginning adult artists can see the information you will gain and apply it to your more naturalist paintings. Six week course. Instructor: Michael Farrar.
