Mixed Media Classes at Eclectica

Join us on February 18 for the first in our new monthly series of mixed media classes! Mixed media is a fun and rewarding way to express your creativity. In this class you will learn how to create a basic paper collage. We will explore various techniques to transform papers with acrylic paint and combine them to create a work of art! In addition to your basic tool kit, please bring a 1 inch flat synthetic paint brush (we recommend Claudine Hellmuth), detail scissors, mini mister or spray bottle, and a water proof black marker (Zig or Copic Marker). Please note this is a workshop length class.
