Mixed Media Art Adventures

Spark your creativity! In this mixed media workshop students will use a variety of art techniques, tools and materials to explore their creativity.

  • What colour is your imagination?All about Colour

Students will learn about the primary, secondary and tertiary colours as they explore mixing watercolour paints. The concept of warm and cool colours will also be discussed. They will create a self portrait on watercolour paper using their own pre-mixed paint colours.

  • Colouring the lines — inside and out! — Abstract Line Art

Students will look at various pieces of art to explore how artists use line to express feelings of movement and mood in art. While listening to music they will create their own abstract piece of art (using colour and line).

  • Creative Shape Making! — Using Collage to investigate Shape

Students will be introduced to various artists who use collage techniques in their art. They will explore how they can use basic shapes (geometric and natural) to create a collage based on a theme of their own choosing – home, nature, pets, sports, etc..

  • Feeling Creative? — Playing with Texture

Looking at various works of art, students will identify various types of textures. They will create mixed media collage pieces as they experiment with a variety of materials (paint, crayons, stamp pads, found objects etc.).

  • The imagination factory! — Creating 3-Dimensional Art to Explore Form

Students will bring together their knowledge of the elements of art (colour, line, shape, and texture) to explore “form” through the creation of a mixed media 3-D work of art.
