|Online Class - Mixed Media and Texture Composition
with Artist Barbara Cassidy
Why do we have an urge to touch a painting? Is it because our sense of touch translates to our sense of pleasure? Perhaps this is the most true for artists and creative individuals like all of us.
Mixed media simply means we use more than one material to create our artwork. Usually we create paintings with one media type like watercolour, oils, acrylic, pencil, etc...Not so with mixed media...the skies the limit!
Mixed Media can include a multitude of different and unique materials. Paint, paper, cloth, imagery, and mediums to name just a few. It can even include 'found' objects and lettering as these can be used in the application to make it more personal. These are all used to create a variety of different textures that speak directly to our sense of touch and visual appeal.
Barbara says, "This style of artwork can be
very creative and is very enjoyable!!"
Barbara helps you develop your ideas, colors and composition to bring your story to a finished painting!

One of the greatest benefits to taking an online class like this, is having the ability to hit the rewind button. If you need to re-watch a particular painting technique more than once, you can do so with a click. This also gives you lots of time to practice and digest the information at your own pace. Watching the videos from the best seat in the house gives you an over the shoulder view of the whole painting process from start to finish...
