Please plan to join us on Thursday, April 28th from 3-5p for a Mixed Media demonstration by Ann Chaitin at the La Jolla Community Center.

Ann is a lifelong artist. Over the years, she has evolved from representational art forms to mixed media and enjoys using diverse materials to create a symbolic representation.

She plans to demonstrate for you how the wonderful variety of handmade papers, bits of nature, photos and found objects can be combined and layered to reflect your own personal visual language. With Ann's deep knowledge and passion, it is sure to be a wonderful journey together into exploring Mixed Media.

You can read more about Ann here and see examples of her work.
