Mixed Media Classes

By Art Instructor Brenda Williams

Express yourself creatively through amazing art! My mixed media art classes focus on 2D and 3D art forms, using a variety of art materials , or “media”.  These different fine art media such as clay, paint, pastels, papier mache, ink, charcoal and wire are introduced through fun and inspiring projects.

Doing art has been shown to improve motor skills, teach decision-making, develop a sense of inventiveness and innovation, develop engineering skills, and improve academic skills. 

Here are some sample projects:                                             

  • Wire sculpture
  • Paper mache sculpture
  • Mixed media collage
  • Clay creatures
  • Mask making using a variety of materials
  • Melted wax canvas art
  • Monoprinting
  • Stained glass design using Pastels
  • Self portraits
  • And more…
