You need to be true to your own style.
Never second guess who you are as an artist.
Embrace your own gifts and use them.

Expressive Mark-Making Techniques in Mixed Media

Mixed-media artist Rae Missigman identifies herself as a "mark-maker." Ever in the forefront of her art, organic shapes and graphic marks are what give her work a sense of authenticity. With an adventurous, anything-goes attitude to expressing herself, she is just as likely to use a celery stem, a sewing machine or a cardboard tube as she is a brush, a palette knife or her own hands.

In Paint, Play, Explore, Missigman helps you discover those marks that define you as an artist, and weave them into your art in new and interesting ways. Through page after page of creative exploration, you'll become a collector of tools--traditional and unconventional mark-makers that will become an extension of your unique voice.

The creative path can be a difficult one to navigate. Have you ever experienced times when you find yourself questioning your imaginative style? Join me, Rae Missigman, for Mixed Media Directions / A Path to Artful Discovery.

Digging into what this questioning means to you and your process may be all it takes to rediscover the artist in you once again. Writing down the words that define your experiences can have the power to illuminate new creative choices. Together we will discover the joy of spontaneous writing and the potential it has to create a space for new ideas and inspiration. Combine paint, ink, pastels, and watercolor pencils to create luscious layers of depth and texture while transforming our musings into a foundation saturated with beauty. Watch as your unique style reemerges through layer upon layer of rich puddled color as you etch, scrub and unearth the artistry buried beneath.

Join me as we create two projects, deconstructing our newly constructed art papers and reshaping them into charming art pieces that celebrate movement along your creative path.
