|The Handkerchief, 1993 |
(woodcut and etching, hand-colored)
The heart on the right was my interpretation of the project using our media:
bleeding art tissue paper
red acrylic paint
black and white pastels
This piece is the demonstration that I did in class. Can you see the differences?
The students loved this project because it involved an unusual combination of media to create a truly mixed media piece! Also it was kind of messy and you didn't really have to plan much - just let the media do its thing. We liked how we could make it a little funky or grungy - it has sort of a graffiti look.
This great art project idea came from Edna Lemm at Do Art! Thanks for sharing, Edna!
