mixed media at the MFA

I am currently taking a class in mixed media at the Museum of Fine Art in Boston.  So far we have created decorative papers using acrylic paint, built three dimensional constructions with cardboard and created a collage which references a master painting.  It has been such a great way to expand my creative thinking and process.  AND it means I am at the MFA every week!

This piece is a project called “call and response”.  First we sketched in the gallery from a drawing or print that was of interest.  Then, back in the studio, we each painted a background sheet.  On the right hand side of the page we responded (loosely) to some aspect of the sketch we had made.  Then we passed our page to another student who responded to that on the left side of the pageIt was so interesting to look at all of the results.
