Mixit offers various workshops throughout the year as well as tutorial sessions for one to three people.
Tutorials are handled on a request basis and are designed to meet individual and specific needs.
In the summer months we offer residencies for artists who want a sequence of days to focus on a particular project, or just to experiment.
Workshop cancellation policy:

Otherwise, we will refund one half of your deposit UNLESS you or Mixit find a replacement, in which case you will receive the full deposit.

Glow with the Flow: Watercolor and Watercolor Monotype
with Jane Goldman
Do you love the translucence and flowing marks of watercolor, the surprises and freshness of seeing your painting on plexi transform through the alchemy of working with a press?
Explore these aspects of this medium and more as you print with watercolor on Plexiglas for an exciting combination of luminosity and complex color layering.
We will review elements of working with watercolor, make "one-pass" through the press prints, ghost prints and multi-layered images.
While the focus of this workshop is monotype, you can bring your previously created matrices (woodcuts, linocuts, etchings) to combine with watercolor layers.
Alternatively, you can concentrate on watercolor at any level, with customized exercises and assignments for this immersive week of painting.
