This is a mixed media painting made with found papers, acrylic paints, acrylic mediums, found images and more. It has a weathered, distressed, tattoo-inspired feel to it. This artwork took a long time to create, it is done in many mixed media layers. The layers really give this piece lots of texture. 
This mixed media work, A Charmed Life was recently SOLD 
and is now in a new home.

Sue Marrazzo Speaks at Good Hope Middle School

On Friday, October 4, 2013...I was asked to talk to 26, 8th grade students at Good Hope Middle School in Mechanicsburg, PA. The topic was, 
Careers in ART. I covered all the different ART careers that were trending. I got to show the students some of my ART and talk about being a gallery represented artist and ART instructor. Then, all the students created a one-of-a-kind collage ATC (Artist Trading Card) using all found papers. What FUN! 
Thanks to all the students for their time and attention.
Take a look at some of the student's work....

Fall 2013 Youth Art Class By Sue Marrazzo

Here is a look into my Fall 2013 Youth Mixed Media Art Class. This is just one young artist at work. In class we started with collage using found papers and a paper pattern and collaged onto a masonite panel. Then the students sketched and painted their subject on watercolor paper. After the painting was dry, the students cut out their painting and attached it like collage paper. Then in the final steps each artist used found objects, stamps, punched papers, glitter and more to finish their one of a kind mixed media painting! Nice Work Class! 

 A Finished Work of ART!


 And more Collage...
