About This Class


Welcome to the class!

In this class we will play detectives. The mission - if you chose to accept it - is to (re)discover what your paints can do for you.

We will mix pigments freely and without following any specific rule to allow them to manifest their full personality. We will use a limited palette - a different one for each lesson. This does not mean in any way a limit choice of colours! Quite the opposite - a lot can be achieved with a minimalistic approach.

This method can be used to create collage papers, gift wrapping, gift tags and other paper goods. It is a great warm-up exercise and can spark creative insights.

Happy colour mixing!

Hi! I am Mona, native of Romania and living in Montreal, Canada since 1994.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to my studio where I like to engage in all things creative. In school I studied engineering (of the software kind), but for the last 18 years I studied art in various forms: oil painting, mixed media, altered arts, assemblage, watercolor.
