New Springs Gallery Workshop--


Mixed Media Creative Play with Sharon Stolzenberger
Saturday, April 28, 2012, 2 PM – 4 PM
Springs Gallery
Class Fee: $40 (many materials provided)

In this mini-workshop we will explore the joys of mixed media. We'll combine sketching, drawing and acrylic painting with mixed media using stamps, image transfers, stencils and collage. Focus will be on creative play and experimentation with new ways of expressing our familiar subjects through a combination of various materials for truly unique personal statements.

Participants should bring brushes suitable for acrylics, a few acrylic paints, pencils and collage items such as papers, prints, and a piece of watercolor board, heavy art board, or small canvas on which to create their mixed media paintings. The instructor will have on hand supplies needed for stamp making and image transfers, some collage materials and a few acrylics.

A graduate of the Dayton Art Institute, Kettering artist Sharon Stolzenberger began her art career as an illustrator, then art director, with Gibson Greeting Card Company. Now self-employed, Sharon paints full time and exhibits in art shows throughout the country. Her mixed media paintings have won awards in many Ohio Watercolor Society exhibitions and have exhibited nationally in the Society of Animal Artists annual exhibitions. Sharon’s work has also been included in books, such as New Creative Collage Techniques by Nita Leland, and Confident Color by Nita Leland, both from North Light Books.
