A research based multi-media Interdisciplinary approach to creating unique individual works of art. All source materials will be considered for mediums.  

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, i.e. found object, collage, circuitry, wiring, glass, etc., we will explore various background layering techniques as well as personal centralized iconography. Demonstrations on proper tool operation, color theory, art foundation concepts and accessing research materials will be covered. 


The student will learn to integrate dissonant materials in a composition in both two and three dimensional art pieces 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 artwork and add personal, unique imagery in oils and acrylics for a finished contemporary work of art and finally the student will learn to resolve presentation and installation issues that pertain to their specific art piece.
