My Mixed Media class has been a lot of fun, and a learning experience for me as well as my brave and creative students. The first day we made a personal mandala using acrylic paint on a wood panel. We needed more than the two hours to finish this ambitious project but I think we all had a good time and learned something about layering acrylic paint. This week, we applied metallic leaf to our wood panels and cut out imagery to collage and paint. These collaged and painted images were then glued onto the wood panel. I'm looking forward to week number three with this fun group of ladies and one fun man (artist Michael Wayne).
