Topographic Mixed Media Lakes

Topography is the study of the shape and features of the surface of the earth. We will study Lake Erie and translate the topographical map into a really awesome abstract painting on wood. Different depths will represent different colors (of your choice). Our project will begin by outlining the lake and the different depths with a wood burner, to create a relief. After that, we will pick our colors and paint!

Ages: Most suitable for adults of all ages - no experience necessary!

Materials: All supplies are included.

Instructor: Vanessa Frost

As a full time artist and owner of MUSEjar, Vanessa finds inspiration and joy in teaching art. Art is a language that is often forgotten about and it's amazing what happens once it's tapped into. Her background is fine art and film production, with a degree from The University of Vermont. She loves mixed media, and currently works mainly with acrylics, but she is constantly exploring and experimenting with all other mediums.

NOTE: All classes require a minimum number of students to run. Please sign up in advance to help avoid cancellation due to low registration. In the case of a cancellation you will be notified prior and receive a full refund. Please read our class policies.
