Instructor: Caitlin Dundon
Join mixed media artist Caitlin Dundon for a fabulous, energizing and inspirational three-day workshop! We will start with the basics of your background substrate starting with collage versus painted and gessoed backgrounds. Work on watercolor paper or bring your favorite canvas or wood panels. The workshop will cover the basics of simple collage using acrylic soft gels and a variety of papers working with the “put a bird on it” theme or students can choose to work with abstract imagery or another theme of their choosing. We will explore image collage working with silhouettes, color Xeroxed/magazine imagery and painted imagery. Then we will discover the magic of layering in mixed media using acrylic painting techniques, stamping, stenciling and more, including:
Students will benefit from daily handouts and critiques with helpful tips for individual problem solving for layout, color and texture. Finally the class will review a variety of drawing/ink pens/brush pens, Slimline applicators and fine brushes for adding details like outlines, line work and lettering including dip calligraphy pens, Pitt pens/Microns, China Markers and Golden high flow paint.
