Earlier this month Farmington High School held their annual Student Spring Art Show for the year. Students were at the Farmington Recreation Center with their artwork for two afternoons. Some were working on pieces while everyone was taking everything in and others were there to answer questions. Every time we go to the show we are so inspired by the talent and creativity of the students. The event is one not to miss each year. Enjoy the photos!
I had a blast making these mixed media tile paintings. I haven’t worked with mixed media very often, but it is becoming one of my favorite ways of expressing myself now. I am learning more about how to use the layering techniques and various mediums and what to add when to compliment different sections of the layers as they go on. It’s sometimes complicated and often thrilling.
I’m just about to start an online mixed media course taught by Susan Schwake from Artstream in Dover. It’s an online class meant for all skill levels. Susan is the perfect teacher whether you are a beginner or an accomplished artist or someone who wants to dabble a bit. She is really interested in helping you find what makes you happy when you express yourself in art and tries to give you the tools you will need to get to where you would like to go. I highly recommend her online courses.
