Building off a layer of collage, we’ll explore a variety of acrylic media and techniques as we learn to follow a painting where it leads us. Multiple layers will be utilized to build interest and texture while allowing for maximum experimentation with fine art media as well as DIY media you can make at home. All supplies will be provided but feel free to bring your own images or papers for the collage element.
Instructor: Joanna McGlothlin
Joanna McGlothlin is a mixed media artist working in acrylic and collage with found objects. She creates abstractions with the goal of evoking a feeling in the viewer. She discovered her love of all things creative at an early age. Whether it was hand-sewing clothing for her stuffed animals, constructing paper creations with glue and scissors or simply eating the occasional crayon she was always up to something. Joanna strives to keep that child-like sense of play alive in her creative practice today. She believes anyone can tap into their own creativity with play and practice. Joanna works to create an environment in the classroom that fosters experimentation and explorations where ideas can be cultivated. Daughter of a life long collector of many things, she can often be found with her head down scanning the ground for bits and bobs that may work their way into her next piece. She apologizes in advance for bumping into you.
