DO YOU EVER LOOK AT MIXED MEDIA PORTRAIT ART AND THINK:

“I’d love to learn how to make art like that.”

Maybe you're at home, surrounded by beautiful collage papers and a rainbow of colourful paints. You're scrolling through your social media feed, and there it is:  a powerful heroine telling a soulful story, bursting with creativity and vibrancy. And you wonder…

"HOW DO THEY...

… incorporate textiles and sentimental objects into their mixed media layers?"

The layers, the colours, the textures—it all seems like pure magic.

"I WISH I KNEW…

… how to create a mixed media portrait like that"

 

If someone could show me how, share their secrets.

"I'VE INVESTED IN…

… mixed media art supplies, but my art doesn't turn out like I want it to."

 

Sometimes I feel like giving up.

"Every class was a learning experience for me to incorporate Delight's techniques into my own style of art. Her teaching style is so down to earth and easy to follow. I was amazed with the mixed media she uses, there are no limits to it. The live zooms where the best because we got to ask questions and get answers quickly. We got to know our fellow students and shared our art and hearts with them. So glad I took this amazing journey! ~Dawn

Not sure about a Zoom Workshop?

If you've never participated in a Zoom workshop before, you will LOVE it! 

It's like an "in person" workshop, but from the convenience of your own home!  You will be able to paint along, participate in discussions, show your work and yourself, get detailed feedback and make new friends  - all in real time.  If you are late or missed the session - no problem!  We will be recording all the classes and meet ups and you will be able to rewatch them as many times as they like with lifetime access!

"IS IT DONE?" A SERIES OF QUESTIONS 

"I loved our live lessons and zoom meetings, for me the contact with Delight and the other participants was essential for the joy this class has been given me. Way more fun than only pre-recorded online lessons. It was very helpful to get direct answers to questions that pop up during the lessons.  Sharing our progress and the struggles of the others was inspiring and educational. It is wonderful to see a comparable process resulting in totally different portraits.

You learn many mixed media techniques and how to combine unexpected materials into a portrait. I highly recommend this class! " ~ Lisette

"This is an awesome class for anyone seeking to push themselves creatively and learn new mixed media techniques and portraiture. My goal was to learn how to incorporate portraiture in my work but i learned so much more! Delight is a very good teacher— she encourages play and creative experiments and gives excellent feedback. I enjoyed the weekly creative prompts and learning how to use new materials.

The structure of the class allows for different types of learning — in person teaching (zoom), watching or rewatching recorded content, and “meet ups” to work through and discuss your work and learn from feedback. It was so interesting to see how different all of our projects turned out."  ~ Nancy

"I have thoroughly enjoyed the Personal Portraits course. It was wonderful to learn many new techniques in such a positive environment. The mid week group meetings helped keep us moving forward and sharing progress. Delight and classmates were supportive of each other every step of the way, and even after the course has finished we are still sharing new projects with each other.  I love looking at my completed portrait every day!  Thank you.~Linda
