Studio 55 | Mixed Media Collage | with Susan

Sundays, 1 – 4 pm

May 12 - June 30 (8 classes)

Studio 55 is the new community programming at TMA for adults 55 and older to connect over art and artmaking.

Mixed Media Collage is an eight-week course full of artistic experimentation with mixed techniques and embellishment. Using approaches such as drawing, painting, collage, embroidery, and printmaking students will be encouraged to layer approaches in their artwork to grow their tools of expression. This studio course is designed for every skill set from beginner to advanced. Studio sharing, feedback, and class discussion are highly encouraged to share discoveries made through experimentation.

“The works remind viewers of the possibilities of profound emotional experiences through aesthetic engagement with decoration “

                                                                                                      -Anne Swartz Ph.D Professor of Art History/ Savannah College of Art and Design, Embellish Me p.26

Mixed Media Collage will find inspiration from the show currently on display at TMA, Embellish Me, Works from the Collection of Norma Canelas Roth and William Roth On view February 15, 2024 through July 28, 2024.
