Explore some of the expressive artwork that came out of Winter 2022’s Mixed Media class, led by Teaching Artist Garima Naredi!

Combining drawing and color, this class aimed to push the boundaries of traditional media like charcoal, and incorporate mediums like pencils, pastels and watercolors. Referencing inspirational imagery from photography, newspapers, and magazines, participants created pieces with a solid overall structure while expressing emotions through lines and color.
