Athens Arts plans mixed media class


Athens Arts will offer a mixed media class Oct. 12.

Mixed media describes art work in which more than one medium or material has been used. 

This is an art form which involves combining different materials like ribbons, fabric, leaves, newspaper clippings, photographs, paints, inks, etc. to create a new artwork. While it was a sporadic practice in antiquity, it became a fundamental part of modern art in the early 20th century, due to the efforts of artist like Picasso.

Join artist Ellie Dieckmeyer for a fun class and make your own mixed media art piece. Instruction and supplies needed for students will be provided. 

Class will be Oct. 12 at 216 E. Main St. Choose either an afternoon session (1-3 p.m.) or an evening session (6-8 p.m.). Class is open to anyone 12 years and older. Cost is $35.

To make a reservation for the class, stop by Athens Arts from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday or 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday or call 765-362-7455 during business hours to pay via credit card.

Activities are made possible in part by The Arts Federation, a Regional Arts Partner, Indiana Arts Commission, a state agency, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
