|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.
