What is mixed media art?
Media means one 'tool' for creating the art. For example: acrylic paint, oil paint, pastel, watercolour, charcoal, pencil crayon, collage and any other 2-D ways of creating that you can think of. It doesn't have to include only traditional art supplies. It could include found objects from around the house, or tin foil, or fabric etc.
Mixed media requires at least 2 different mediums to come together to create one unified piece of art. The more you mix the more complex the work becomes. You can play with layers to see what works. It can be a lot of trial and error.
We examine ways to mix the media. You will learn methods for layering, but more importantly, how to use this medium to express yourself clearly. Check it out in our Mixed Media Classes.
Join us in the brand new MONA LIST ART SALON for the first inaugural workshop!! This space is absolutely breathtaking! It will inspire your creativity. There is plenty of room for each participant to paint and express themselves.

Whether you are planning a birthday party, bridal shower, team building event, or client appreciation night; we have the perfect way to do it! Mixed-Media Art and Wine Night at the Badlands Community Facility!
Mixed-media artwork is the use of two or more different mediums to create one piece. JakeJoy uses up to 4 different mediums in one painting: photo transfer, ink drawing, collage and acrylic fluid paints. She would like to share some of that process with you. This will be an easy to follow mixed media introduction class. Get ready to be surprised and thrilled with the outcome of your own mixed-media painting.
In this class we will use photo transfer to create the base drawing of our mixed-media painting. Then strengthen some of the dark colour or add marks with pen and ink. We follow that step with built up layers of acrylic glaze and then you can decide if you would like to add more detail with opaque paint and collage. The work is completed with a final seal of glaze.
Join us for a night of ART and WINE and MUNCHIES! Best combination really.
