"I experienced the workshop ‘Mixed Media Angels’ as incredibly fun and relaxing! I learned many new techniques in terms of background, use of colour and the extra element of adding pre-patterned paper. I found that surprisingly beautiful! Luz is a friendly teacher, her explanation was clear and when I needed it, extra information was given. Luz encouraged me to paint in my own style. I have worked with great pleasure and would do it again!
I gave my angels a prominent place in my living room. 🤗 I’m so happy with them !!“

- Susan student in the workshop 'Mixed-media Angels' in Luz’ studio

Creating your magical angel step by step

In the video lessons I'll be showing you various techniques, that you can use right away. In the preparing stage, you'll be working on your background, you think about your colour palette and the composition and you will design some patterns. When you have collected enough elements to work with, you can start piecing together your angel. In the class I encourage you step by step how to bring your angel's face to life. So, if painting faces has always been challenging for you, don't worry!

Mixed media techniques

What I love about mixed media, is you don't need many materials to work with. As a basis, all you need is a canvas, acrylic paint and paper for your flowers. The rest is up to you! You could add pre-patterned paper, fabric, tea bags... or even dried flower petals. I encourage you to think out of the box, as there are many resources you could use in your piece. Having said that, you don't need much in order to follow the class, I show a list of materials below on this page.

Suitable for all levels

This class is suitable for all art levels, whether you are a beginner or an experienced artist. Everything will be explained step by step, I'll teach you a lot of techniques so there will be something new for everybody joining the course! Being open and eager to learn are more important than the level you're at!

Creating angels with my young students (6-11 years old) is a recurring event. Their results are stunning! So, the course is suitable for kids for sure. Wouldn't it b a wonderful activity to create some angels with your (grand)children during the Christmas holidays?
