Boozy Mixed Media

How to paint a portrait using mixed media



2 hours Class size 12 to 20     label $65

Learn the art of mixed media in this two-hour experimental workshop with Artfolk Creative.

Branch out of your comfort zone and push past creative blocks. This workshop is aimed at beginners wanting to get creative and try various mediums in a relaxed environment with plenty of wine to keep those creative juices flowing!

In this workshop, we will cover approaches to combining different mediums to achieve interesting results. You’ll learn new ways to mix unexpected mediums together, and by the end of the session, you’ll be able to apply these ideas to create a mixed media still-life portrait!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class


What you'll get
  • Watercolours and watercolour paper
  •  Pencils, pens, pastels and brushes
  •  Drawing and painting inspiration
  •  And of course, wine to get those creative juices flowing! (We provide a red and white wine, feel free to bring something different if you prefer).

What to bring

Just yourself and a willingness to experiment!

Growing up in Byron Bay, Vanessa spent innumerable hours of her youth engrossed in artmaking and creative adventures. She began her professional life as a Graphic Designer working for advertising agencies both in Australia and the UK. She now holds separate tertiary qualifications and professional experience in Design, Visual Arts, and Education, relishing the opportunity to work in arts industries.

As a practising ceramic artist, Vanessa exhibits her work at various galleries in Queensland and New South Wales, her work also part of private collections both national and international. She loves nothing better than pinching porcelain, decorating surfaces and splashing colour.

Inspiration for Vanessa’s work comes from the cultural richness that surrounds her. Weaving her experience of travel, art histories and daily rituals into her artmaking, Vanessa enjoys exploring the possibilities of mixing various materials and processes to create art that is evocative, textural and desirable.

The boozy mixed media class was fantastic . Vanessa was so lovely to talk to and so helpful. There was no pressure to be an ‘artist’ but just to have some fun. I took away so many simple and fun ideas that I will use in my classroom

I loved the demo the instructor gave. It helped the students to get a feel for how easy it is to apply different mediums to one picture!
