Learn the fun process and skills needed to energize and make the surfaces of your art complex, dynamic, nuanced and rich with meaning. Through the process of mixed media, found object and collage, we will explore various back-ground layering techniques.  

The student will learn to integrate dissonant materials in a composition to create a successful finished work of art. The student will be taken through the steps of preparing various surfaces in order to apply collage and mixed media materials. 

The student will learn to apply acrylic tints, varnishes and pigments over the surface of the art work and finally add personal and unique imagery in oils for a finished contemporary work of art.

LoCicero’s work makes references to the idea of traveling and the act of moving from one place to another and from one time period to another. He is intrigued with the past and the associations that can be made with aged surfaces and vintage ephemera. His paintings refer to the idea of traveling as a metaphor for multiple kinds of passages; literally, symbolically and culturally.
