Mixed-media Medley: Explore the Possibilities with Jenn Mason

Join artist, author, designer, and teacher Jenn Mason for a trip through the enticing world of mixed-media art. The journey begins with a show-and-tell of the multitude of surfaces that can be used as a base for a mixed-media art piece—from simple paper to canvas boards and three-dimensional found objects. Next, consideration is given to the tools and techniques used to cover these surfaces (everything from simply sealing the surface to glazes, paint, stamping, and collage), followed by options for distressing surfaces. Then, enjoy an enlightening discussion of all the different types of embellishments that can be included in mixed-media art pieces (from fabric and paper to found objects and even new, store-bought items). Finally, learn numerous techniques for attaching embellishments to your artwork. The Workshop concludes with a gallery of mixed-media projects.
