Mermaid Mixed Media Class


This event is SOLD OUT. But we're already planning another class for later this year. Stay tuned for details.

Time & Location

JUNE 8, 2024, 10AM - 1PM

Pamlico Interiors, 13676 NC-55, Bayboro, NC 28515 | (252) 745-2337

About the Event

Participants begin with a simple, pencil sketched mermaid on a 1’ by 2’ piece of plywood. You'll be given instructions, suggestions, and examples of various structural elements of art used when creating mixed media pieces.

Participants are encouraged to explore and experiment with various materials that may include, but are not limited to: modeling paste, gesso, material, paper, beads, string, paint, wood, plaster, and a wide variety of found objects.

All tools necessary will be provided including glue guns, scissors, and paint brushes.

Participants will have fun exploring new and unique techniques to adorn their mermaids, creating scales, hair, and other decorative features.  The end result will be a one of a kind mixed media mermaid for each participant to take home.

Ticket Info

Irene Goley, of the Broad Strokes Gallery, a program of the Pamlico Arts Council

After working for 30 years as a speech language pathologist in schools and launching 4 children, Irene now has time for experimentation and the freedom to try new and different mixed media materials… an elephant with sea glass tusks, why not?

Most of her work relates to the ocean, but on occasion a moose or another unexpected object makes it way on to her canvas or wood. She likes to use easily-found objects or recycled materials to embellish both her original artwork or prints. This gives every thing she paints a unique status.

Currently her work is shown in three galleries in and around the Outer Banks, and will be featuring in the Broad Strokes Gallery, coming soon to Oriental.

$40 for members of the Pamlico Arts Council

$50 for non-members

Seating is very limited. If you don't make it into this class, we'll be hosting another class in Oriental later this summer. If you're not a member of the Arts Council, please consider joining or sign up for our email updates.
