Mixed Media Patterns w/ BOGI PATAKI Canceled

October 17 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00am on Tuesday, repeating until October 24, 2017

In this fun workshop we will be creating a mixed media artwork based on repetition and symmetry using a favorite symbol (from ancient cultures, folk art,), or an image from nature, (plant, animal, insect, bird, fish) that we feel connected to.

In the first session we will have a discussion about the images we chose, why we like them, what they mean to us and we’ll pick one that would work with our project. We’ll stylize, simplify our symbol/image and use this clean, almost outlined drawing for the final artwork that will resemble a pattern design. In the second session we will be coloring the line drawing using at least 3 different media (for example: colored pencils, markers and watercolors). Please see supply list below. I will bring several books on symbols for reference, some supplies to share and the large sheets of paper for the final artwork. All levels are welcome.


Please bring:

  • 2-5 favorite symbols or images of objects, plants, animals, insects, birds etc. (your final symbol/image should fit in a 5”x5” square)
  • Sketch book
  • Drawing pencils, one graded 2B and one HB (I love the Staedtler brand)
  • Eraser
  • 18” ruler
  • Several small and medium brushes (make sure you have at least one small, size 2 brush)
  • At least 3 or more different types of media, pick from: colored pencils, watercolors, inks, crayons, colored pens, fine black pen,
  • Markers, acrylic paints, gouache, tempera, oil pastel
  • If you like to mix your colors please bring a palette (it can be an old dinner plate, white only)
