Affirmations in the Abstract: Mixed Media

Saturday, August 21, 2021
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
$90 Museum Members, $100 non-members (includes most materials)

AUGUST 21—Saturday, 12–5pm
Registration deadline: August 20, 5pm

In this small-group/in-person workshop, create a finished artwork that represents and empowers your own self-affirmation through thoughtfully chosen media, colors, and words. Affirmations are positive statements that can help us overcome obstacles. Choose a personal affirmation, then explore the possibilities of abstract art with the limitless application of mixed media including collage, paint, gloss medium, metal leaf.

Originally from Rhode Island, instructor Bonnie Parker has lived in North Carolina for most of her adult life. She has instructed and tutored a range of ages in painting, especially with her preferred medium of acrylic. She holds an undergraduate degree in English literature and studio art.
