Mixed Media EXPRESSIVE Figures with Annie O'Brien Gonzales
176 Race Street
Let go of realism and create a mixed media figure painting—no drawing skills required! Spend a fun, low-pressure evening creating a colorful painting. This workshop is for artists at any level--even newbies. We will start with acrylic paint to design a colorful underpainting, add collage, stenciling and shiny things to dress up our figures and you will take home your own personal mixed media figure painting.
