Calling all teen creatives! Are you someone who is interested in all kinds of mixed media art and can’t decide which medium you like best? This class is for you! This studio-based course will include painting, drawing, collaging, and fiber arts. We will spend part of the day creating 2-D artwork on canvases and part of the day designing 3-D art that includes the art of embroidery and even fashion! Bring a favorite clothing item to transform with graffiti art techniques. We will learn about folk artists such as Maude Lewis and famous abstract artists such as Jean Michel Basquiat. We will also take a field trip to a local art gallery to learn about local artists and what they are making in 2023. You will leave this class with fresh ideas and new skills to incorporate into your own personal art making.
