Mixed-Media Studio: Drawing and Painting Techniques for High School Students

Register Now

Glitter, salt, confetti, dirt and even paint! This mixed-media drawing and painting class will play, experiment, and innovate with synthetic and natural materials while considering the human impact on the earth’s ecosystems. Through a series of projects and explorations around the Fort Mason campus, students will learn through trial and error and experiments to uncover the natural properties of common, everyday materials and create unique works of art. In the process, they will cover the basics of form, composition, and color theory and gain a foundational understanding of the process and science behind art materials.

All courses culminate in a pop-up show at Embark Gallery on Friday, June 23rd.
