“The Alchemy Of Mixed Media”
Learn how to combine materials from the ground up. Wet and dry paint, drawing, and collage. We will make hand-made gesso, create grounds with plaster, and then build our ideas into something larger than their parts. Glazes, cold wax, and encaustics will be introduced. Exercises and demonstrations provide new approaches to techniques and process. Stimulate your inner muse and expand your art practice.

I earned a BA in Photography where I utilized photo documentation of “self” as an investigation of personal identity, against the backdrop of living in Southern California. I earned an MFA in Painting where my process resulted in an abstract language of ideas, aimed at representing the inexplicable. My visual practice is a vehicle to navigate the crossing points between the material world and the atmosphere of spirit.
“It was a pleasure to face the creative challenge under Lauren’s very professional guidance. Her humor made the adventure even more rewarding. Thanks for expanding my creative spirit.”.

“Lauren’s creativity building workshop completely takes the ego out of the process. I experienced the most intense feeling of being ‘in the moment’, which resulted in a profound emotional breakthrough.”
