MIXED MEDIA

Mixed Media
Making Sense of the Messy and Muddled

with Susan Garman


Times To be determined


 

 

 

Class Description: Mixed media arts combine numerous techniques, styles, and media to create masterpieces on a variety of substrates, (canvas, wood, fabric, paper, etc). In this series of classes we will explore a different technique each week and students will leave with at least one completed project and the skills to create more messy and muddled magic outside the classroom. Not for the neat freak or the perfectionist. We will get messy and mistakes do not exist. Any “oops” are only opportunities for developing style. This class is designed for the novice to the advance. All students will learn techniques while developing skill and style. Come to one class or come to all. This is not a progressive series. Supplies will differ week toweek, however each student will need the same basic tool kit for every class:

All classes require preregistration. Please see below for individual class descriptions.

About the instructor: Susan Garman lives in Ft Pierce and has a studio at the One Eleven Orange building in Historic downtown. Her quirky, some might say snarky, sense of humor, makes her classes fun and freeing. She has an, “it is what it is” philosophy that makes every project fresh where each creation deviates from the norm. If you shy from trying new techniques or products for fear of making a mistake, Susan is your instructor. She’s probably tried it and if she’s failed, she’s figured out how to make it work. Messy is what makes it fun and imperfection makes it unique. Of course if you are a neat freak she respects that too. For more info or questions about her classes contact her at susangarman@gmail.com

BASIC TOOL KIT

  • Scissors (small pair for detail cutting and standard size for all other cutting – These do not need to be your mother’s sewing scissors. Inexpensive pairs will do just fine at this stage).
  • Heat gun or a blow drier
  • Cotton rags, (bring a few – a cut up t-shirt works just fine)
  • Baby wipes – these are as much for cleaning your hands as for altering an art piece
  • ¾” to 1” acrylic flat brush

Class Description: Struggling for the perfect floor covering for your entryway? Need just the right colors to match that new bedroom décor? Want to create a special gift for a new mom that coordinates with her nursery theme? Ever thought of making a floorcloth?

Floorcloths date back hundreds of years but a recent resurgence in floor design has given them a renewed interest. This class will give you the freedom to create your own 2 x 3 foot floorcloth using colors and designs of your choosing. Bonnie preps your canvas in advance so you are free to begin working on your design your very first class. This 4 week workshop will take you through the creation of your piece from prepared canvas to fully painted floorcloth.

For more information please contact the instructor, Bonnie Phelan at floorclothsbydesign@yahoo.com or Art Mundo 772-466-1010

About the Instructor: Phelan first learned about floorcloths and their origin from her Art Instructor in Tuxedo Park, NY, Mary Bullard, a locally well-known portrait artist in her own right. Her interest was spiked, but it was not until she came to Florida that she decided to really delve into this type of historical art form. Phelan has started to work with some local decorators who have commissioned her to create floor-cloths to coordinate with their décor. She has earned a good reputation in working with clients and or their decorators to determine the “perfect” design and colors to complement their furnishings. She has proven her versatility in being able to design for the client or coordinate with the decorator. One thing that Bonnie will tell you, “I love what I do!” — and it shows.

 

$50 supply fee to be paid to instructor:

Includes everything needed to create you own floorcloth. Please bring something that inspires your design such as a photo, paint chips, or fabric swatch

 

**Sign up with a friend and receive a second bare floorcloth canvas as a thank you. Just enter a quantity of "2" when you check out with PayPal.

Class Description: For beginners, this is an introduction for students who would like to learn oil paints. More advanced painters are welcome as well, as many artists struggle to learn how to bring their paintings to completion. There is very basic art instruction; perspective, shading, etc., and then how to use your paint to achieve your goal. Use of mediums, kinds of brushes, different ways to execute a painting. Emphasis on accuracy, learning to observe, gaining confidence in your skills so you can go your own way. For artists who have experience and would like to enhance their knowledge, you may bring paintings you are working on or projects you'd like to start. Having trouble with certain techniques? Want to learn more about finishing a painting? Bring it in! Classes are ongoing, so you may attend as long as you like. It is important that ALL students contact me before attending the class.


About the Instructor:
: I was lucky to find a wonderful instructor over fifteen years ago who shared his knowledge of academic painting. Since then, I have been perfecting my technique - after all those years there is always something new to learn. I love realism and that is my speciality, but I still like to go from one end of the spectrum to the other with it. Thus, my work ranges from super-detailed trompe l'oeil to more loose and colorful paintings; all the while exploring what paint can do and honing my skills. I enjoy painting just about anything, from animals to still life; each subject has its own set of challenges and I learn from them all. My work has been exhibited in local and national galleries and collected in the US and overseas. Contact George at 772 460 0894 or glovefl@msn.com for any questions regarding this class. Preregistration required: Call 772-466-1010.
