Class Title Deconstructed Canvas: Fabric & Paper Poetry
Mixed Media Artist & Teacher
Join Kristin Peterson on a mixed media canvas patchwork exploration. In this single day class, we will be playing with various substrates. Fabric, paper, canvas. Glue, stitches, color. There is permission to mix textures and share layers with our own sense of style while being mindful of our overall composition. We will find our own art marks. Pencils, pens, crayons, inks, sprays… Our pieces will embrace the creative magic as we leave that inner critic at the door. So bring along your curiosity and sense of wonderment.

About Kristin: Kristin Peterson is a third generation artist, originally from South Dakota. Kristin’s creative passion is inspired and supported by her husband and kids.Kristin is always exploring and expanding the creative depths of mixed media. She very much enjoys vintage collage work. Kristin loves color and things that have a love-worn comfortable feeling-like an old favorite pair of jeans-coffee stained, patched, painted and well loved. She wants her art to project feeling and make people feel good while looking at it. Her paintings contain vibrance mixed with a little funk, which is sprinkled with discreet sensibility. Her style is meant to make you ponder and smile, just as she does as she paints and creates.
