Mixed Media Techniques on Canvas

Tricia Reust will be working on three gessoed canvases, one smaller (about 10 x 12 inches or 11 x 14 inches or thereabouts is good) and the other two at least 24 x 30 inches.

It is optional if you wish to add already existing drawings in with your collage, and if you wish to draw on your canvas (Tricia will be doing both).

You will explore completing one smaller work with a minimal approach; one larger work incorporating all the techniques to be covered, including glazing, printing, stencilling and stamping; and the third canvas using techniques of your choice.
