  • An interest in art.
  • A love of unique artwork.

Mixed media collage art is an introduction to the world of collage. This easy step-by-step guide will take you through the process of creating an art work. All the materials used are explained in conversational terms that anyone can understand.

You will be able to see each step in video format. The other information is explained with text, voice and photographs of artwork created in this manner. The course is structured in a series of easy to follow lessons. The whole course, if followed according to each step can take a minimum of three days. First, we create our own painted papers that have to dry overnight. Then we collage the papers and those have to dry overnight too. On the third day, we add details and embellishments. You can take as much time as you like for each step but drying time is needed in between steps.

This course is for anyone interested in creating artwork that is unique. Each piece created is different and totally personal.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who loves creating artwork. Basic painting skills help but are not needed.
  • Someone who likes artwork with a difference.
  • Someone who wants to know the basics of creating with mixed media.
  • This is a level one class. You will learn introductory techniques.
