Old Orchard Beach/Saco Adult and Community Education

Mixed Media Art

with Russel Whitten


Class has begun

Learn to use found color to create paintings. Our first lesson will be finding colors and values from magazines to create your own color wheel collage. Using whatever means of color at your disposal, we will also construct paintings to recreate a pictorial structure from a live or photo reference of your choice. No class 5/30.

As of 3/9/22: 3-foot distancing required, masking optional. 

Required: Drawing paper, pencil, eraser, a glue stick, scissors or X-acto knife, any water-based paint of choice, photos or magazines with lots of desired color you don't mind cutting, and any other media that has color or value. (approx. $10).

Note: Date changes due to instructor illness (was 5/16-6/20).

Russel Whitten, a local artist/teacher, studied at The Art Students League of New York, Heartwood College of Art, and is a member of The Ogunquit Art Association/Barn Gallery. Students love his easy, supportive style.
