Jennifer Stone: Mixed Media Workshop July 2016

Badlands Art Association is excited to announce an upcoming mixed media workshop this summer.

mixedmedia-1Have you searched for just the right collage paper, with the right colors, and had to settle for something that was just okay? Now you can create papers to suit your needs and to turn your paintings into something much more personal and interesting. Oftentimes regional and national art shows require handmade collage papers – yet another reason to create your own!

Jennifer Stone is an experienced watercolor, acrylic and mixed media artist. She is also an engaging workshop instructor, having taught multiple workshops in her home studio and throughout the Midwest. Many artists, having taken one workshop from Jennifer, return for another – the best commendation a teacher can have!
As Jennifer says, “This class is for the artist that wants to create art that is unique to them. By creating handmade collage papers and carving stamps with your own designs, your art will be totally original.”

Carving stamps, making collage papers and incorporating them into a painting

Carving stamps allows the artist to add another tool to making collage or to use directly in their paintings. The student will learn how to transfer a design to the carving block and by using carving tools they will carve their own original stamp. They can be as simple or elaborate as you wish.

The fun continues when you incorporate these into your painting. The student may choose an abstract or a representational subject. This is a fun filled workshop with a lot of information shared! Open to all experience levels.

Jennifer will be demonstrating in watercolor. Participants may paint with acrylic if that is their preference – they will need to be experienced in acrylic, since Jennifer will not be teaching in that medium.
