Open Your Wings Mixed Media Workshop

This 3 week workshop (Opening July 6th) will gently guide you through two projects.

Faux encaustic work of art with found rusty elements and winged hearts. Two additional bonus projects are included in week three using plaster, clay and image transfer.

These projects will journey through,

~ faux encaustic, ~plaster, ~clay, ~image transfer and ~collage

With prompts to help you spread your wings, find your creativity and journey through the process soulfully.

My goal with this workshop is to give you an intimate setting with a small class size, to come as close as possible to teaching you live.

There will be a Q&A video at the end of each week, with one more follow up Q&A a week after the course ends to make sure everyone is flying.

I will answer each of your questions by video, demonstrating techniques and answering dilemas. What ever the questions are, I will cover it in person.

You'll receive a supply list, that is also available in the classroom. Believe it or not, there's not alot of supplies needed. Most items you will already have. There will be just a few things you might need to pick up, but you'll get the supply list a week before class opens so you can begin to gather.

You will also receive page after page of vintage papers and butterfly downloads to use in your projects.

A few more details

  • I walk you through each technique step by step so that you understand the medium that you're using.
  • We'll practice first, so that you can get a feel for what we're doing and get the jitters out.
  • I create right along with you, and I don't just show you the process, but share the mood and feeling behind creating.

  • Although this is a 3 week course you can take your time and work at your own pace. However, I will only be available for the 3 weeks to answer questions with real time video, after that I will reply via email.
  • The classroom has a discussion area where students can reply amongst each other, ask questions, make comments and post pictures of projects and your process.
  • All content is in the classroom, downloads, supply list and everything is downloadable.
  • You'll receive your classroom access a week before class goes live so you can make yourself familiar with your settings and you can get and download your supply list, watch a welcome video and get excited about creating.
  • There are no refunds allowed due to the fact that you will have course content available to you.

Artist/Creative Soul Shawn Petite

Well Hello There! And thank you for allowing me to join you on your creative journey! My name is Shawn Petite and I’m a mixed media artist, living my dream of creating every day. I've been teaching and creating for over 26 years in many different mediums but found my art soul mate in mixed media.  I’ve been published in several magazines, I produce my own line of stencils, and create soulful and informative workshops on mixed media. But most importantly, I try every day to encourage and inspire. To show love with my paintbrush. To leave my little corner of the world a better place. One of my greatest joys is to know that I've encouraged YOU on your creative journey My favorite quote: I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. " Maya Angelou Always know that you are loved!
