Affirmations in the Abstract: Mixed Media
AUGUST 21—Saturday, 12–5pm
Registration deadline: August 13
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.

The Museum's studio program for adults offers a core curriculum in drawing, painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional media, and also explores the intersections between them. Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions. Classes meet for 3–12 weeks, and are designed for anyone interested in exploring specific media in depth; daylong workshops introduce new media or processes.
