“Collage Mixed Media with Acrylics “
January 13th, 2018, Saturday, 9- 12 noon
Instructor: Stacey Fletcher Reynolds
Experiment with collage and mixed media, altering your painting with texture to give a unique surface. This course will introduce new and experimental ways of painting and stretch your creative boundaries with the experimental uses of acrylics. The focus could be more of an abstract approach to painting, but will also be combined with realistic elements. Learn to achieve an outstanding composition with collage incorporated into the painting. We are going to be working with two smaller canvases. Please bring items you wish to use as part of your collage elements. All supplies are provided; open to participants 16 and older. $70 (members) / $76 (future members)
About the Instructor:
Stacey Fletcher received a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting and Drawing from The University of Tennessee in 2003, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Valdosta State University in 2000. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in many individual, group, and juried exhibitions. She recently moved her family to Daytona Beach to take a position as an Assistant Professor of Studio Arts at Daytona State College. As a cathartic painter, Stacey’s work expresses emotions and frustrations that would otherwise be hard to express verbally. They seem abstract at first glace to the viewer, but have some sense of childhood imagery disguised among the colorful layers. Her work is fresh with vibrant lively colors, with layered metaphors of herself and others contrasted with the chaotic approach of the energetic marks.
