Mixed Media Ocean Fish and Seahorses

with Melanie Stanley

 Have you ever been mesmerized as you watch beautiful fish and seahorses in videos, aquariums, and in a natural environment? Well imagine creating your own colorful, ocean painting where your unique sea creatures swim on a canvas of your own design! I will demonstrate a variety of techniques for you to use while layering your under the ocean scenery with fish and/or seahorses that come from your own intuition and imagination. You will also have templates, do don’t worry if you cannot draw. Beginners to advanced art students will enjoy this creative, colorful evening! So come and let’s have Oceans of Fun together!

Melanie Stanley is an Art Education/Fine Arts major and  has many years of experience both teaching and creating art. She loves working with adults and children.  “I belong to several art groups and galleries and exhibit my art in Virginia at various locations. I have won 6 awards for my art, and I dearly love mixed media…and teaching it!”  Melanie Stanley teaches drawing and mixed-media classes at ArtSpace Herndon.
