Lisle, Illinois, July 28, 2014 (McKenzieNewsService.com) - Now in it’s 3rd year, beginning Wednesday, August 13th at the Sheraton Lisle Hotel, artists from Chicago and surrounding areas will come together for 5 days of creative inspiration at the Create Mixed Media Retreat Chicago. The Hotel is located at 3000 Warrenville Road, Lisle, IL.
 
From the editors of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, Create Mixed Media Retreats Chicago brings together over twenty top mixed-media artists from all over the country who offer their expertise in full-day and half-day workshops within five mixed media categories:
 
Bookmaking & Art Journaling – gather, bind, and embellish a multi-dimensional book all their own.
Printmaking & Surface Design – layer, print, stamp, and stencil on surfaces of varying fibers and dimensions.
Mixed Media Stitch – sew, fuse, and embellish their way to amazing fabric art pieces.
Collage & Assemblage – combine paint, papers, and found elements to yield unique creations.
Mixed Media Jewelry – craft jewelry from varied ephemera for themselves and their friends.
 
While learning from the nation’s top mixed-media artists, students enjoy quality time with others who share their passion for creating art. The event draws artists of all backgrounds, from curious beginners to experienced artists.
 
Throughout the event students will also enjoy a free and casual social hour in which to work on unfinished projects, socialize with fellow artists & staff, and enjoy snacks and drinks.
 
They’ll also shop the Artists’ Faire – an event in which artists and art suppliers come together for a high-energy marketplace that welcomes event attendees and the general public. Vendors include some of the instructors as well as outside suppliers.

 

The cost for Workshops is $152 for a 6 hour Workshop, $89 for a 3 hour Workshop.
