A workshop aimed at helping students explore their creative side through mixed media will be on offer at Manzanita’s Hoffman Center for the Arts on Saturday, Feb. 3,
Led by Astoria artist Patti Breidenbach, “Mixed Media Acrylic Painting & Collage” is designed for students aged 18 and up and open to artists from beginner to professional.
The class will focus on creating art using paint, collage, stenciling and fabric. Students will leave with a finished 8-inch-square piece of art.
“The goals are to introduce another way to interpret personal thoughts and personal environment,” Breidenbach said, “while lifting the perceived limitations of materials.”
Breidenbach, who has a BFA in Jewelry Design, is also a certified high school teacher and a former executive director of the Granville Arts Council in Oxford, North Carolina.
Although all materials are provided, students are encouraged to bring any materials that they want to use such as their own acrylic paints, brushes, stencils or fabric.
The workshop, which is limited to 10 students, will run from 10 am to 4 pm at 594 Laneda Avenue.
Tuition is $80, plus a $20 materials fee. To register, go to hoffmanblog.org.
