Beginners Mixed Media Workshop

Our lovely group of ladies came together this morning at The Little White Studio, for a morning of Mixed Media fun, and oh what fun we all had.  After a nervous start from some of our attendees, they soon overcame their fears and let their creative juices flow, and then there was no stopping them!
Creating a Mixed Media piece on canvas using acrylic paints, inks, music sheet paper, tissue paper and lots of passion, we set about layering up our artwork , to create a richly textured background.
Instead of spending lots of money on expensive Arty tools we showed the ladies how to use everyday household items to create the wonderfully textured backgrounds you see here, it's surprising how after spending time at The Little White Studio you will go away and start looking at ordinary objects around your home and work out how you can use them in your Art creations.
This is a fun and messy way to paint, so aprons were most definitely required.. Some got more messy than others!!!!!  You can't be afraid to get your hands dirty with Mixed Media.
As the morning session progressed the ladies creative wings began to spread and they took control over how they placed things on their canvas and how they wanted it to look, they had only gentle encouragement, ideas and thoughtful guidance from Karen and I at this point.

And the end results were wonderful..... As you will see, although they were all given the same tuition each canvas turned out quite different as they took hold of their own creative process.......

Really well done ladies, Karen and I really enjoyed our morning with you, and are very proud of what you achieved, we hope to welcome you back again soon to assist you further in your artful journey!  If YOU would like to attend one of our workshops please do not hesitate to drop us an email using the typewriter link at the top right of our blog.
