Mixed-Media: Building it up
to break it down

Class Date | May 21, 2022 | 1:30 PM – 5:00 PM PST

We are breaking all the rules and reinventing new ones! I’ll show you how to lay down color without ever needing to learn to draw a single line by teaching you the simple applications of value and the permission to allow the media to do all the work.
In this workshop I am going to teach you how to build and even more fun, destroy your layers in a very expressive and controlled creative way in order to develop stronger connections within the layers of your work and push beyond the background towards a finished piece. I like to call this, and lovingly so, “The Art of Destruction” knowing how to break through the creative barriers that trip us up in our process by learning how to transform them into stronger more impactful connections.

Anna "Finnabair" Dabrowska-Pekocka

You might know me as Finnabair, but my real name is Anna Dabrowska-Pekocka, and I’m a mixed media artist, teacher, and product designer. Transforming and upcycling everyday objects is the cornerstone of my craft. Between textures and paint, my love for dimensional artwork has shaped my distinctive style.

In 2011 my hobby transformed into teaching mixed media classes all over the world. Since 2013 I’ve been one of the most active product designers in the mixed-media world. The products I design with Prima blur the line between craft supplies, home décor, and fine art. The Finnabair brand is visible and dynamic, full of creative energy, with just the right pinch of quirk; our focus lies in workshops, new techniques and product development.

My mission is to continue this magical, artistic journey and teach and encourage as many creative souls as I can on their path of self-discovery. Art is always the answer.

Grungy Nostalgia – Collage Class

Class Date | May 14, 2022 | 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM PST

Book of Baroque – Altered Cover Class

Class Date | May 21, 2022 | 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM PST

We are going to work on the canvas to make a grungy yet romantic collage with a vintage twist. There are layers, textures, shadows and highlights – all based on art mediums, mica powders and beautiful embellishments adding unique texture and dimension.

A great class to make friends with mica powders and get your fingers dirty while working on an amazing, personalized canvas project!

The second project is the journal/book cover with stenciling, dimensional elements and beautiful tissue paper background – all decorated with 3D elements. Our main focus goes to building textures and a combination of matte and metallic antiquing techniques which give the project a really unique look!

Fun, practical and a great idea for a handmade gift!

Lanette joined the Prima Design Team in 2021 but she has been an active member of the online craft community since 2012. She has designed for multiple craft companies and suppliers.

Somewhere along the way, her love of paper crafts turned into a love of mixed media and especially flowers! In addition to flowers, she loves to play with paint, create texture and is obsessed with layering.

In 2015 she started teaching and absolutely fell in love with teaching mixed media.  Ultimately, she just enjoys sharing her creations, techniques and art experience. Her goal for any workshop is to take the fear out of the unknown, have a laugh, get messy and create something pretty!
