In this class students will explore mixed media art through a variety of techniques, such as collage, assemblage, printmaking and drawing. They will learn that art materials and inspiration can be found everywhere, at home and in the natural world.
Through the exploration of artworks by contemporary and past artists, students will deepen their understanding of how they can create their own mixed media representations of the environments in which they live. Central art concepts will include texture, composition, and storytelling.
Monday - Wednesday, August 3 - August 12
(It is expected that students work during this whole time, at their own pace.)

Anne Hayes is an art educator and visual artist living in Maine. Her artwork incorporates painting, drawing and mixed media in naturalistic abstraction; her inspiration stems from forms and spaces in the natural world and how we observe and interact with them. Found materials serve as subject matters and influence the final narrative and form of much of Anne's work. As an art educator, Anne strives to incorporate her art practice into her teaching. Experimentation, exploration of materials and the natural environment, in addition to an open and positive mindset are all values she highlights in her teaching. Anne's interdisciplinary multi-cultural background, based in learning and teaching French, in addition to teaching English at home and in France, also influences her work as an art educator. She possesses a holistic approach to education, and believes that every student can find success in their own way.
