Winter Tree Mixed Media Art

The perfect project for a rainy afternoon or a free Saturday morning. We will create our own painted papers and collage them onto the front and sides of a cradled wood panel. Using the provided images or images of your own, I’ll walk you through the steps of making this start-to-finish art piece. When you’ve finished this piece, you’ll be inspired to create many more.
