Workshop | Mixed Media Portraits in the Street Art Style
April 15 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm$120
MIXED MEDIA PORTRAITS in the STREET ART STYLE
Led by Janie Reisler
$120 (includes a $60 materials fee)
In this NEW WORKSHOP, attendees will focus on creating a self portrait or portrait, using mixed media elements with a Street Art Style. Today many artists of this genre choose celebrities to create a tribute of someone they admire and celebrate them in portraiture.
Prior to attending class, please choose the person, theme or concept to use in the workshop. Bring selfies and/or images in large black and white copies (no laser) images to incorporate into your piece, along with your creativity! We will demonstrate many techniques that street artists use today in their work, specifically inspired by artist STIKKI PEACHES of Montreal (first image below).
All materials included, except for images of your theme.
The techniques include:
- Proper collage technique
- Gold leaf application
- Photo transfers with gel medium
- Graffiti typography
- A brief history of the street art style
Students will be learning about a handful of muralists as well as their drawing techniques to draw inspiration from their work.
Envision YOUR PROJECT as a JOURNEY. Start thinking about a main theme or event you’d like to build upon. Varnish will be done at home, yet proper technique will be demonstrated in the session. You’re encouraged to register early, as the instructor will be sending out some notes to prepare you for this hands-on workshop. Take notes, Google STREET ART, MURAL ART, MODERN MIXED MEDIA ART and start the process of putting together IDEAS. This WORKSHOP is an EXPERIENCE that you will surely grow creatively from and move on into a NEW DIRECTION in your future projects.
Scholarship opportunities are available, so please contact Arts Warehouse if you are interested in applying for a workshop scholarship in order to attend.
