Art: Exploring Mixed Media


Please visit this webpage for all details on this art class being offered at a great rate at NEXTtoFOREVER Studios in Port Huron. Classes are every Saturday from 10am to 1pm starting January 14th for 5 weeks. Then, the following Saturday evening will hold a gallery show where the student will be able to show (and if they'd like, sell) their artwork they created in the class!
This class is only $60!
All you have to do to register and hold your spot in the class is email Joshua Werner at asfallleaves@hotmail.com and say you'd like to take the Mixed Media class! Payment options are very easy, we accept cash, check or money order by mail, credit cards and debit cards over the phone (call 586-855-1410), and credit/debit/paypal by internet!

Here's all the info you need to know about class materials: 
The following are the materials that will be necessary for the class. No name brand materials necessary. Creativity and the following tools will be all you’ll need to create incredible quality pieces of artwork in this class! Try to have all of these ready by your first class if possible.
 -  A bottle of craft glue, be sure it’s a glue capable of  gluing both paper and fabric (and not Super Glue). Sobo is a great brand for this, but any brand of craft glue will do. 
 -  2 11x14 Stretched Canvases (Please be sure these are stretched and boarded canvases, we’d like all of the canvases to be uniform size and shape for the gallery show!) 
 -  1 16x20 Stretched Canvas 
 -  White acrylic gesso, any brand will do. 
 -  At least one large area brush for applying the gesso to the canvas. 
 -  Craft brushes: cheap “do-all” brushes that we can use to apply glue and any variety of wet mediums. 
 -  Acrylic painting brushes. These are brushes that you just intend to use for acrylic paints. 
 -  At least one black fine point and one black “ultra” fine point marker. Sharpies are great, but any brand will do. 
 -  Acrylic paints: try to bring a variety of colors if you can. Any brand will do, but don’t bring “washable” paint (paints that can be washed off fabrics and upholstery, these are less likely to hold up in mixed media pieces). 
 -  Some sort of  plastic paint palette, doesn’t have to be anything fancy! 
 -  A Pair of Scissors
Some other recommended materials: Pencils, erasers, a sketch book, and just about any other art supplies you might want to bring. This is all about exploring other mediums in conjunction with paint. So: Have markers? Bring them! Have colored pencils? Bring them! The instructor will also have some supplies available for use in the classroom, just be sure to have everything on the materials list!
$45 Ultra Value Art Package:
Don’t have a lot of the materials for the class? Or just looking to get new art supplies? $45 Ultra Value Art Package! For $45 I will have all of the following materials, brand new, ready to give you on the first day of class! This will take care of your class materials, and at a discounted price (this cost is less than the total retail price of all the materials)!
