Mixed Media Supply List.

This class will allow you to make artworks using your choice of materials, with personalized guidance and instruction by Gerda .

. Your artwork will be your very own—whether you are just starting to make art or need a change of pace

. Please note: You do not need everything on the list below. All materials will be discussed the first class. I recommend you bring any of the following materials you already have to the first session of your class.

 You will only need paper and pencil for the first class.

If you do not have materials for the first class, please do not fret, Gerda will have some of these to experiment with so that you can buy only what you will use for subsequent classes.

 MATERIALS COMMONLY USED IN MIXED MEDIA ART:

  • You need only pencil and paper for first class. Paper for warm up drawing (might be able to use later.)  Drawing pencil, 2b.
  • Acrylic mediums in your choice of gloss, matte or semi-gloss—can be used as a glue and as a coating that seals the surface
  • Watercolor pencils
  • Graphite pencils, colored pencils
  • Sharpie markers or other permanent markers
  • oil or Acrylic paints and brushes, acrylic (drawing) inks

Gesso

 OTHER ITEMS YOU MIGHT WANT TO EXPERIMENT WITH: · Photographs, personal letters, ephemera, anything you would like to play with including stamps, stickers or stencils

  • Old artworks you made and no longer want to preserve—make this decision only with your own original drawings and paintings
  • Recycled papers—newsprint, magazines, mailings and discarded old books are great to work with
  • Wood elements: shapes, blocks, pieces

Mixed Media Art For Beginners.

Mixed media is such a broad, all-encompassing topic that it is easy to become overwhelmed before you even start experimenting. During Introduction to Mixed Media , Gerda will take the mystery out of mixed media and help you get started making art.

In this class, Gerda will cover all the basics and teach you how to lay out a mixed media art piece, step-by-step and item-by-item. You’ll learn about common materials and how each media within the piece works and interacts with the others. You’ll learn how to:

  • Create a collage base
  • Use stencils to add texture and/or imagery
  • Add texture with gesso
  • The elements of color, including value, temperature, saturation, hierarchy, complements, light, harmony, and contrast 
  • The use of color complements in image making 
  • The relationship of color to the medium and expression 
  • building a series of paintings
  • creating rich surfaces and backgrounds
  • exploration of texture
  • questions and answers
  • how to use gelli printmaking techniques in your work
  • creative collage and paper making methods
  • harnessing composition and design elements in your work
  • building confidence through positive exercises
  • learning to let go of perfection
  • working intuitively and spontaneously through play
  • being bold in your mark making
  • Letting go of rules and expectations
  • Planning and finishing off an artwork
  • Experiment with different techniques and acrylic mediums while developing your own style
  • stamps, stencils, sponge rollers, geli plate etc
  • Making your own collage papers
  • Abstract or more traditional subjects
  • Spontaneity for maximum effect
  • Permission to gain the confidence to paint how YOU have always wanted to paint
  • Paint over collage

Gerda will discuss the different types of acrylic paints and oil paints, how they work, and how they react. You will learn which materials work well together and get lots of tips you can use when creating pieces in the future.

Even the most inexperienced beginner will develop a new appreciation for the art form and learn skills they can use to start making their own mixed media art.

Learn about color, papers, brushes, drawing and composition.. Gerda teaches painting techniques that will help you create your own special works of art.
