Artist’s Toolbox: Mixed Media in Drawing
Although mixed media is a category unto itself, it can be combined with drawing in fun and exciting ways that range from the subtle to the bold. This workshop can be considered a mixed media class for people who draw as well as a drawing class for mixed media artists and enthusiasts. We will sample a variety of wet and dry media, and experiment with drawing, decoupage, collage, and transfer techniques. All skill levels welcome. You may wish to bring a snack or lunch to enjoy during a short break.
This class is the first of four in this winter’s Artist’s Toolbox series. Each workshop in the series will focus on a different combination of media in drawing: dry media, wet media, color, and mixed media. Throughout the series we will push our drawing, stretch our creativity, and grow as artists. The spirit of this series is experimental, playful, and interactive. Join us for all four days or sign up for the classes that interest you. Feel free to bring your own materials if you like, especially ones that you may have been hanging onto but hesitating to try.
Teal Emlyn Sallen is a 2D artist specializing in drawing, painting, printmaking, and mixed media. She earned her BFA in Printmaking at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 2006. Teal’s style is representational and narrative, with a touch of magic and whimsy, and shows the artist’s enjoyment of light and color. Rather than generating a body of work in a single medium, Teal happily explores multiple ideas through print, paint, and pastel. Her curiosity about the human, the natural, and the fanciful can also be observed as a common thread in her diverse collection of work. To learn more about Teal, visit her website.
