Working small and on multiple pieces is the perfect process to get out of over thinking and get your creativity flowing.

I often use this method as a warm up before working on larger pieces or if I feel the larger format is too daunting. It takes the pressure off and instead you have permission to have fun.

Mixed Media Minis (or Art Tiles) are also great for taking art making on the road while traveling.

Or if you want to carve out a quick session to do something creative, M&Ms are the perfect and convenient way.

But what excites me the most, are the tiny treasures of art that emerge from these miniatures.

Join me in this online course where you will work on multiple 3 x 4 in. tiles blending simple mixed media materials such as paint, collage, fabric, tiny found objects and more. I will also go over some simple ideas on how to make your art making portable and easy for travel.

Hi, I’m Lisa!

I'm a professional mixed media artist and have been teaching a variety of mixed media workshops for the last several years. I have an extensive background in art & design. I'm a licensed therapist and creativity coach. So, I understand the ins & outs of the creative process. Especially what it means on a personal level to be able to express yourself creatively.

I love helping students get passed the obstacles getting in the way of their personal artistic journey. With an encouraging and safe space, I help them uncover their true creativity and discover that they ARE an artist.

Mixed media is the perfect medium that allows you the freedom to get messy and explore what organically unfolds. You’ll be surprised at what you can create when you're given the permission to not have it be perfect and to PLAY!

In my courses, I share my experience and knowledge working in mixed media and the different techniques that can make your pieces rich with layers and dimension. I give you the basics for the different techniques and then encourage you to follow your own creative intuition.

I hope you have fun & enjoy the course.
