Kids' Mixed Media Class 7/31/09

It's fantastic what you can teach kids who are interested in art! I had a wonderful group of six yesterday for four hours, and look what they accompished!

We did so much in the class. First we altered photos with bleach, bleach pens, scratching implements and pastels. Then we altered postcards with collage and rubber stamps. Then we collaged a canvas board with neutral papers with text, maps, music, etc. and our one or two favorite altered photos or postcards. Then we painted acrylic glazes over the collage. We added a couple of tranfers over this, which was cool because the text, music and colors showed through them. Lastly, we added more paint and pastels to integrate the transfers and finish off the piece. Cool stuff!
