Feminine Icon Mixed Media Painting
According to wikipedia, one meaning of icon is “an image, picture, or representation; a sign or likeness that stands for an object by signifying or representing it”. In this full day workshop, you will explore particular attributes of the feminine icon image, rendering your personal symbolism through a variety of mixed media techniques. This class is appropriate for all skill levels including beginners. It is not necessary to have any drawing or painting experience as your work will be intuitive and self-guided. I will demonstrate simple ways to create a textured background, lead you through my intuitive process of collage building, and finally working with paints, inks, and other mediums, teach you how I blend, soften, and define collaged areas to give the finished piece cohesiveness.
You will leave the workshop with a beautiful mixed media painting, overflowing with personal symbolism and heart. The supply list is short; I will be bringing feminine icon images, as well as a plethora of papers and images from my large collage stash.

Katie Kendrick is a self-taught, mixed-media artist, who works in the genre of folk and outsider art. She lives with her husband, 2 dogs and 2 cats on 7 acres in the Puget Sound area of Washington State. She finds making art to be a potent way of connecting with her true nature and staying in touch with her heart. She thrives on open-ended art making and is continually surprised by the unexpected results inherent in the process. When she isn’t creating mixed media art, she’s off with her camera, pursuing her love of photography and often includes portions of her own photographs in her work. Her folk art dolls were featured in the mixed media periodical ‘Cloth Paper Scissors’, in the winter 2006 issue. She enjoys teaching workshops and classes, sharing her love of creating with others.
