Whether you love experimenting with your own flavors, or following a recipe to a 'T,' Flavor of Mixed Media will be your guide to handcrafting some of your most delectable works of art yet! Artist Mary Beth Shaw will share her mixed media painting techniques for working with color, incorporating many different textures, creating multiple layers, developing a distinct flavor and making all sorts of clever combinations.

  • How to experiment with color mixing and develop your own tasty triads
  • Achieving texture with unusual tools such as a cheese grater or stencils or "icing"
  • Clever new ways to use what's already in your art-making pantry
  • Creating depth to your work with cutout shapes or Plexiglas
  • Doodling bookmaking, collagraph printing, actual food recipes and more!
