Trendy Wall Art: Bold Colors over Photos

In this project-based class, you will learn how to craft and paint exceptional modern wall art using collage techniques.

You will learn:

- watercolor dripping effect

- watercolor rainbow background

- to turn vintage illustration and photos into modern art

- cleaning your image in Photoshop

- turn your image into a large print

- create vintage portraits with pop-art feel

(your result might be traditional as well as digital)

This class was inspired by contemporary trends in interior design. I will show how to create several art pieces using vintage illustrations and photos and finish them with bold colors and several media (watercolors, oil pastels, markers) to create an artwork which is unique, and you will love. The best part is that you can create your project in less than one hour!  

These creations may decorate your home or make perfect gifts for your friends.


We are going to use only basic materials for art and crafts. However, I will show you how to use Photoshop to adjust the images (or print large formats), which is completely optional.
