Creating a collage background for a mixed media painting, an online class with Kellie Day

Lesson 4 of my mixed media e-course, Pedal to Petal is now available as it’s own class! This bite-sized, collage class will teach you how to collage a canvas, and to become familiar with the materials you’ll need.

Class Details:

DescriptionAre you ready for an easy way to start your next painting? Learn to create a simple collage on canvas that can be used as a background for a future mixed media painting. I start many of my mixed media paintings with collage because it’s fun and unintimidating. It also adds great texture underneath your paintings. (All of these materials are acrylic and work well with acrylic paint.)

This lesson is taken from Day 4 of my full mixed-media e-course, Pedal to Petal. If you’ve been curious about collage, this class is for you! AND, if you’ve been wanting a taste of my e-course but aren’t ready to commit to the full sha-bang, this collage class is the perfect first step.
