Painting with mixed media and collage. Come out and play, and learn to paint your “muse” with Kellie’s step-by-step road map for spreading your creative wings. How To Paint Your Muse is a painting playground in a package. Through guided exercises and lots of fun tools, Kellie will walk students through her mixed media painting process from start to finish. Students will experiment with acrylic mediums, stamps, collage, paint markers and more. With an encouraging teaching style, Kellie will guide students on inspiration, finding a unique voice, and allowing mistakes and imperfections. Working hands on, students will explore how to create free flowing collage backgrounds, layer different media, play with paint, convey vibrant moods with their subject matter, and apply finishing touches. Kellie will share her own philosophies on dramatic design, and even reveal resources for joyful scrap collecting. This is a fully supportive class in a fun environment where you’ll be encouraged to strengthen your artistic voice and recognize that you have something significant to share.
