Mixed Media Experimental Painting Live Studio Class at Lisa Heaney Studio

Item Description

This is a two day LIVE STUDIO CLASS  at Lisa Heaney's Studio in Santa Ana, CA

I love to push mixed media to its limit. The past several years through fearless experimenting I have discovered some very cool and mysterious techniques that I would love to share with you!

I will show you everything I know about working with linseed oil, graphite and charcoal as well as watercolors, charcoal , a few acrylics, gesso and plaster (joint compound). Drawing with pencil as well as needle, thread and wire.These techniques  will be demonstrated and incorporated in our final pieces. That is just the start of it. We will also work on collage using vintage book pages and image transfer techniques.  A sample book will be created to build a vocabulary of marks, textures and techniques to add to our tool kit.

Not only are the mediums unconventional but the substrates are as well. We will work on watercolor paper, vintage ledger paper, vintage fabrics and laces (check the vintage stores for a source of amazing fabrics to use). Joint compound (pre-mixed plaster) will be added to create depth and texture.

I will demonstrate my portrait techniques that work so well with the mediums we will be using. The emphasis is on expression and texture.

KIT FEE- $25 (pay at class)    -    A few pieces of vintage fabric, wire, Collage bits , embroidery thread and needle, joint compound, watercolors, watercolor paper, chalk paints, loose charcoal, linseed oil
