Big Bear Mixed Media Portraits

Students will create a whimsical, oversized portrait of a bear wearing a fair isle sweater! This class will include step by step instructions for the bear's outline, and then the opportunity to paint or color in the sweater. The final step is mounting the cut-out bear onto a large piece of wallpaper. The result is sure to please artist and family alike!

Instructor’s name
Art educator Jen Johnson holds an undergraduate degree in art history and English literature from the University of Kansas, as well as an MAT (Masters in the Art of Teaching) from the English Department at the University of Montana. In her own practice, Jen is equally invested in understanding the larger world through her interactions with the art objects of others and the making of her own art objects. Jen considers her greatest strengths as an educator to be the facilitation of reflective and critical conversations about art and art making, as well as the creation of safe environments for authentic explorations into the practices of self-expression and making. Her preferred mediums are mixed media, printmaking, and photography, but she enjoys the act of creation no matter the medium and considers it one of her greatest joys to make art alongside others.
