Welcome to my studio, the candy-land of mixed media art. I’ve had the grace as a creative, making my living as a professional full time artist for over 25 years selling my paintings and sculpture. Along this journey I’ve taught and mentored many students.
I’m offering special small intimate safe classes while COVID lasts. I’m opening up my studio space and have created a series of of intimate classes for people to come create, experiment and learn for a day. You just show up and I provide all the supplies.
I will teach a course on a specific technique for each Intimate In Studio session. All classes are COVID safe and practice guidelines from local health officials.
The Nature of Mixed media
1 Day Workshop for creating & integration techniques with Lisa Jennings
1st HALF OF DAY
Come ready to learn about different papers and get your hands wet in the paint. We will cover the basics about the different papers and the way that they can be used along with liquid acrylic paint.
I will go over 3 techniques that I use in making my pigmented papers: mono-printing with fluid acrylics, batik resist and geli printing which has so many variables to print very unique beautiful pieces. I will demonstrate every process and have stations set up for you to print or pigment.
2nd HALF OF DAY
The second day I’ll go over the suggested acrylic mediums their uses, how to attach papers to canvas, board, paper and panels. We will be using our created papers and paint as a foundation to make a mixed media piece that we will build up with layers of paint, paper, stamps and use of mark making with watercolor pencils, graphite, stamps and pastels.
Spend a day outside in the creek like you used to as a little kid! Come play in the water. I’ll share with you, how to identify different stones & treasures and where to look. We will be hunting sticks, stones and odd & ends to create mandalas. I’ve been doing this for years to help find treasures and additives for my sculpture and is one of the most healing things that I love to do on a regular basis. I guarantee you’ll go home waterlogged, happy and full of new inspiration.
**Wear comfy water shoes, hat and swimsuit or attire that allows you to get soaked. You might want to bring change of clothes. Please bring a bag lunch and water bottle.**
