FLASH: TWO SPOTS REMAINING IN MY NEW MIXED MEDIA CLASS @ THE ATHENAEUM , LA JOLLA! APRIL 23-MAY 28, 12:30-4:30


Have you been thinking that it is time for you to try some new approaches with your ART? Studying extraordinary CONTEMPORARY Masters with references to RENAISSANCE or MODERN & applying this to your own work in order to “stretch” yourself is what this studio class is about. Through DVDs, online sources, and books we will look at these artists to see what we can learn from them, how we can benefit from their experience in our own work and relate it to the time in which we live. The focus will be for you to get in touch with your unique way of CREATING ART, whether through traditional painting (abstract or representational) &/or mixed media. In this class you will get the opportunity to experiment with diverse media in ways that you have always wanted but perhaps felt that you could not. Some of the many materials to which you will be exposed are Mylar, gold and silver leaf, spray paint, photo transfer, acrylics, plaster, clay & many others. We will look at examples of work done by artists not afraid to express their individuality and take chances. With demonstration, techniques new to you will be easier to understand, and through personal critique you will see how to compose more effectively and learn the steps necessary to be able to edit your own work. Each student will be provided personal access to images of renowned artists whose work we will study along with information on techniques & materials that you will find very useful.  OPEN TO INTERMEDIATE OR ADVANCED STUDENTS PLEASE.  If you have questions, feel free to e-mail Rivian at 4choux@sbcglobal.net or via http://www.rivianbutikofer.com.
