Guest Artist and author Alena Hennessey June 1&2

Wild Muse: Diving into the Magical World of Mixed Media

During this 2-day mixed media workshop we will explore a range of techniques and inspiring materials, to create two works of art, with a strong emphasis on color, line, movement, and texture.

Through various opening prompts and exercises, Alena will guide you in creating pieces that hold your heart longings and dreams sacred, while letting your natural creative abilities guide you. The first works will be paper and paint-based collages that will get the juices flowing before you begin to work on your large painting on wood. The larger work on a gallery sized wood panel will have a strong focus on water and color flow, while incorporating the magical world of botanicals and any creatures or animals you wish to incorporate into it.

The works you create will serve as symbolic and beautiful totems to enhance your life, a treasure to keep and serve as a reminder of what you hold sacred.

Be prepared for a super joyous and educational class.
