Claremont, CA Mixed Media Open Studio Art Instructions

by paperfacets

Come to the mosaic or art studio and learn many techniques to keep you creating at home and in the art studio. Open Studio located off the 10 freeway for easy commute.

I am learning mosaic techniques in the area of Claremont/Pomona, in the San Gabriel Valley, and have branched out in several other mixed media projects. The teacher offering the guidance is Leanne Turner, a well rounded artist also offering drawing and painting, tile making, glass art, assemblage and mosaic ideas in every medium imaginable. Bring your idea and create in any art media. I am practicing drawing and painting for flat unit origami.

If you are familiar with my artistic items, you may have guessed my focus is paper. My first project in Leanne's studio was a paper mosaic. She guided me through a painting process that had a unique design all my own developed in only two workshop sessions. This first project was a decoupaged cigar box, a technique I had not any experience with. I already can think of additional uses for my first design idea.

If you are in the San Gabriel Valley area, including San Dimas, La Verne, West Covina, Covina and Pomona, the art space is open to anyone interested in developing their mixed media arts and crafts projects.

The first image below is a simple paper picture covered in broken glass. All the spaces were filled with black grout. Project done. The glass is available in studio. A project can be started on your very first session. A piece like this can be applied to an old dinner plate, serving tray or a small cabinet door from discarded furniture.

Mosaics Ideas and General Drawing and Painting

Applying glass to a project like the rabbit below is as relaxing as putting a puzzle together or knitting a familiar sweater pattern. No need to transport till it is complete and ready to take home.

The art sessions by Leanne Turner are offered in her studio. Easy on and off the 10 Freeway at Towne Ave. Leanne also offers guidance in drawing, painting including landscape, still life and portraiture. These are not classes but a DIY space, because some want camaraderie during their creating time. If you can not afford the "She Shed" this is the next best place.
