Magical Mixed Media for Kids
Contact Mark Palmer for more Information!
Students in grades 6 through 8 will make marvelous works of art from start to finish using mixed media techniques! Beginning with canvas and wood as foundations, you will add your own touches, guided by artist “Mr. Mark” Palmer, who will direct you step-by-step through this fascinating process. He will show you how to use found objects, acrylic paint, photo transfer, layering and texture to create unique compositions that you’ll be proud to display! Mark Palmer of Rockledge, Florida is one of the resident artists at the Studios of Cocoa Beach. A Buffalo NY native, he began his art career while living in Washington DC. After two decades he abandoned his cosmopolitan city life and moved to Paducah KY where he helped pioneer the resurgence of the blighted historic “Lowertown” neighborhood. He purchased a pre-civil war building and renovated it to house his art gallery, artist retreat and living spaces. Marks vibrant abstract works range from watercolors to mixed media incorporating acrylic, ink, collage, photo transfer, oil, aquarelle stick, and found objects. Bring your favorite memorabilia, scraps of paper, ephemera and found objects. $60 for 4 weeks | $15 materials fee
