I'm am so excited to be offering this class!

In this mixed-media class, I will teach you the technique, but you bring the story in the form of collage paper: photos, letters, your favorite color, a written poem...

Then you will make your own collage papers, use what you have brought, and make a piece of artwork that is specially made for you and by you!

Who: Everybody!

Here are some things for you to think about...


What/whom you are doing the mixed media/collage for?

  • Your kids?

  • Grandparents?

  • A place?

  • A time in your childhood?

Things to ponder:

  • Favorite Colors?

  • Foods?

  • Toys?

  • Outdoor Adventures?

Then, you can start collecting collage materials to bring to class:

  • Pictures (or take them?) 

  • Letters (from a loved one) 

  • Numbers (your address?) 

  • Logos (Starbucks? A Game?)

  • Etc.


*** If you are concerned about using your original collage pieces, you can print them on a laser printer.

I would like you to pick out 2 or 3 colors. Colors that you (or whoever) would love! And I will show you how to mix them. 

My client uses a Pinterest Board to gather her colors










Here is an example of some of the collage papers that I have that are available to you.

I have pinned some examples of other artist's work on Pinterest. PLEASE follow this link to get some helpful inspiration and pick 3 that you like.

At the start of class you will get:

  • Cradled panels. (pictured below) 

  • Tools, paint brushes

  • Collage papers

  • Paint, drawing things

  • 2 sheets of paper that you can scribble on, loosely paint on, make marks on, etc., to use as collage papers

  • "Glue" that you can adhere collage papers to your panel


During the class we will:

  • Prepare the panels 

  • Go over Value, (black and white)

  • Cool things on the phone!

  • Mix your colors
