What you'll learn in this mixed media class:

Mixed media collage is the utilization of more than one medium in a single piece of art and may include paint, glitter, crayons, fabric, magazine/book images/quotes, found objects, ink, watercolor, oil pastel, chalk pastel, colored pencils, etc. 

Mixed media art brings together all of your artistic skills, even if they’re not as good as you’d like them to be, to create pieces that will release your creativity. This art form is perfect for all those who are beginners as well as those who are not very good at drawing, but still want to make something. Fulfill your inner need to create and receive the lasting health benefits of art such as relaxation, stress relief, and mental clarity. You have unlimited potential!

Because most artists are visual learners I teach by example so I will teach cutting techniques while cutting and working on a project simultaneously with the students, gluing techniques while gluing, how and when to add different layers by example as well.

Students will learn how to choose images and text for their art, cutting techniques, gluing types and use, layering the project with as assortment of mediums, balance, form, combining colors, adding found objects etc. in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Sign up now to learn how to combine different mediums (using collage as a primary medium) in a no wrong way/perceived mistakes are just an opportunity to learn mindset, virtual classroom.

About the Instructor:

I have been teaching art as well as crafts at a private art school for 6+ years and have been a professional artist since 2001. I have also earned my master teaching credentials from the state of CA. My style is intuitive and free flowing which leaves room for individual student creativity and flexibility. My classes are a fun way to learn new skills and develop the independent intuition needed to keep the creative process alive for years to come.

Virtual Class FAQ

What will be included in my Virtual Class package?

One ticket includes an access link to your live, online class. The class will be delivered via web conferencing software and feature a live, professional instructor who will walk you through a lesson as described above. You will have the opportunity to ask questions as well as participate from home.

How many people is my purchase good for?

Each ticket is good for one "device" (i.e. one computer, phone, tablet, etc. you'll be logging in from). This ensures we don't get more people in the class than the instructor can handle. Though we understand some people live together and will be working/learning together, the intent is that each class still allows for the same attention to attendees as if students purchased separately. Please be respectful of this!

Will I need anything from home to use in the class?

You will need a reliable Internet connection as well as a computer or device with which you can access your virtual class. We recommend you arrive to class 5-10 minutes early to ensure you're able to set up your device and connection. Additionally, if the class is more than just a lecture you will likely want any materials listed in the course description as "Materials Needed to Participate Fully", though you're welcome to purchase a seat and sit in and just watch.

Am I able to ask questions or interact with the class?

Yes, you'll both be able to ask questions using the chat function in the video hosting software as well as at certain intervals during the class via voice/audio. If the class winds up being on the smaller side, more spontaneous interaction/questions will be encouraged.

Do I have to show my video or speak during class?

While we recommend you do show your video and speak when encouraged to by the instructor, video and audio participation are never mandatory. We find classes have more fun experiences when people are engaging with one another, but understand not everyone will want to do so and that's ok!

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

It was amazing to watch Ginger Lou create such a beautiful piece. Living in Sydney (Australia) the time difference was such that it was 5am when the course began. I had intentions of getting up and creating but ended up staying in bed and watching instead. I was actually glad as I could really see how Ginger Lou worked layers into her collage. I can't wait to give it a go!

While the instructor may have been skilled, she was not a communicator. She did not have the students intro themselves and did not ask what we wished to accomplish. There were only 3 of us soI it was doable. She wondered off topic and seemed to ramble a bit. My piece was not really a creation reflecting any new info and i left the chat after 1 hour. M

We did not last very long on this course- it was not really what we were expecting. I had assumed the instructor was going to give us ideas on how to structure a collage and artistic direction. She may have gone over that but we disconnected after about 20-30 minutes of the class. The first 20-30 minutes was watching her start a collage and we were not really interested in that. She was very lovely and again, she may have spoken to our needs but we disconnected early.
