PSA #8: Summer Classes at My Creative Classroom

Join Catherine at My Creative Classroom in this fast-paced 3 week workshop jam packed with fun techniques and projects as she explores several different types of Mixed Media Collage. The first week you will learn a little art history, watch a video about tools and supplies and how to use them as well as learn some basic surface techniques to add texture, color and images to your collage and create a basic collage utilizing the techniques discussed. 
In following weeks Catherine will introduce different collage techniques as she provides a detailed, step-by-step presentation demonstrating how she created the sample project for the week. Each week will have a discussion forum for specific questions as well as a Student Gallery to share completed projects and gain personal assistance with your project. At the end of the course the student will have had the opportunity to complete three different collages using a variety of tools and supplies.

Get Creative in this Wire, Paint + Paper workshop!

Each week you will change the surface of the canvas by adding paint, paper, wire shapes, text, quotes and other embellishments to make a cohesive canvas. The end result: we’ll make a larger canvas that incorporates several (or all) of the techniques from class in a personal shrine that will be a creative inspiration to you every time you look at it.

Students will create a new canvas each week and learn how to:

·   Combine masks with multiple layers of paint, ink and paper

·   Create image transfers on canvas
·   Work with crackle paints, glazes, gesso and Gel Medium
·   Create layered paint backgrounds
·   Bend and incorporate rusty wire on your canvas
·   Mix vintage papers, paint, ink and stencils to create one of a kind backgrounds
·   Include found objects such as sea glass, shells, dried flowers or whatever your heart desires on 
your art to give it a place to rest and be displayed in your home

This class includes slideshows, handouts, sample projects and technique variations, student art galleries, discussion forums and informational links as well as Extended Enrollment. Please email me at cmscanlon (at) with any questions you may have about this class.
