Cattywampus by Carol Nelson
  Cattywampus by Carol Nelson  
Class Description: 

This workshop will feature a series of projects in which we will explore different mixed media techniques Carol uses in her paintings, and is suitable for all experience levels. Students can expect to complete one or more paintings per day.  

Carol's approach to mixed media works well for highly textured abstract compositions. You will learn about a variety of materials and techniques, such as use and preparation of Tyvek, embossed foils, combusted origami foil, rusted iron paint, making your own unique collage papers, making unique focal medallions using air dry clay, acrylic skins, inexpensive substitutes for pricey art materials, and much more.

You will learn Carol's unique "sandwich technique" which makes creating abstract compositions simple and fast. The following techniques and approaches will be covered throughout the week:

  • Abstract composition

  • color theory

  • demonstrations and discussions of epoxy resin

  • various kinds of supports

  • attachment techniques for various collage elements

  • presentation options for a finished pieces that eliminate the need for expensive framing

We will work on multiple surfaces including wood panels, watercolor paper, and even foam plates.  Our color explorations will go from a very limited color palette, such as black and white, to analogous colors, to complimentary colors, to (no holds barred) the entire color wheel.
