“What If? Why Not?! — Mixing Media/Mixing Methods” with Anna George –Studio 2–starts 3/29 9:30-12:30 Wednesdays

“What If? Why Not?! — Mixing Media/Mixing Methods” with Anna George

Relax into light adventure with this fun, evolving class series in Studio One. Will Spring inspire innovative work where both common and uncommon materials unpredictably mix? Find out in these seven weeks of combining and repurposing materials, where each artist integrates simple principles of composition and addresses each new surface with both a conventional and an unconventional eye. Build a piece with mementos or simply play. “The finest ingredient ever is the imagination,” notes instructor, Anna George, “and play is premium.”


What if? Why not?!  allows everyone to complete several pieces. No experience is necessary. Guided projects at the outset involve working on boards, paper, and canvas and selecting from an assortment of provided ingredients. Members then utilize their own materials, or if preferred, continue with materials provided by the instructor at cost.


Collect the finest found materials–thread, mesh, music sheets, straw, bits of nature, foils, shavings, tissue papers, string, the odd finds. Tools and adhesives for assembling are provided. Even simple pen marks over a sweeping swath of paint work magic, just as cut paper shapes land on a smooth ground—the choices are endless.

Materials fees for the first three weeks is $23; for seven weeks, $52 remitted separately to Anna George.
