New Mixed Media/Collage Workshop!

"Floral Reflections" 12x16 image, mixed media

The exciting and dynamic workshop in Calgary with Sharon Lynn Williams on March 15-18, called Creative Mixed Media/Collage is for artists of all levels of experience.  Each student will be challenged at their own level.

You can register for this workshop through Leading Edge Art Workshops and the web

The focus of this workshop will be to create and use papers  and found papers in collage, to create texture, adding acrylic paint and other media as needed.  We will work in two ways:  from "chaos: - an unplanned painting; and also start other work beginning with good compositional designs.  The subject matter will be the student's choice and we can work in many expressions, from realism right through to non-objective work.  The emphasis will be on having fun, developing creativity, with plenty of time to paint and play.  Includes several demos, a slide show and lots of one-on-one assistance with Sharon.
