Summer Camps 2019

Acrylic Mixed Media

July 31 – August 2 | 9:00am – 4:00pm

AGES 16+ | $150

Artist and Instructor Andrea Tama uses her passion for nature to guide adults through working with still lives and using multiple images to create unique paintings. Students will study a variety of still life arrangements and experiment with cropping and abstraction to create a series of  works during the week.

This workshop requires color theory, drawing and previous acrylic painting experience.

Andrea Tama says, “My art is a very tactile process, the materials I use, my technique—the very feeling of the piece is influenced not only by how it feels in my heart but how it feels in my hands. That’s why I never restrict myself to any one medium. I love all the techniques and rules of art almost as much as I love breaking them—I am a longtime instructor of art and forever a student of it. I am very active in my local community and frequently travel in search of new inspiration.”
Andrea has instructed for many years at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center in Birmingham, MI and also at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts.

A detailed supply list will be provided upon registration. Larger canvas or gessoed cradled wood panel, 2 – 3 smaller canvas or gessoed cradled wood panels and paints are necessary.
