Class description: Explore the creative possibilities of  “the materials at hand” which may include both traditional and non-traditional resources such as collage, painting, found materials, print and mark making; even discards, in the true spirit of Mixed-Media Arts.

Heyward’s mentoring process moves participants through a series of alternative print making, collage, painting and mixed-media exercises. These practices help students to break out of creative blocks and self-imposed barriers. While each session is unique, the thread is participant interaction with both facilitator and fellow artists. Students may bring works-in-progress to move toward completion.

Supply list: Participants are encouraged to supply two wooden panels, primed or un-primed, 8 x 10 inches minimum. In addition you may want to bring watercolor paper, Bristol paper or mixed media paper, photos, xeroxes, acrylic paints, inks, graphite bars, matte medium, YES paste, or UHU glue sticks.
