It’s time to step out of your comfort zone and try something completely different. In this demonstration, you will be taught the basic techniques guaranteed to get your creative juices flowing. Karen Sako will lead you through a small project combining many different art styles by layering paper with other mixed media. Experiment with a variety of possibilities that each individual can then adapt to their own personal style. Work intuitively, surrendering your expectations and explore mixed media art!

Karen Sako is a graphic designer, art instructor and award winning mixed media artist with a BFA in Visual Communications from The Illinois Institute of Art. Her true love is fine art and she concentrates most of her time to teaching and creating mixed media pet portraits. Karen has been sharing her infectious love of art with students in the Chicago area for over 25 years.
