Students will select from 3 images which will be emailed to them upon registration. The student will choose a cow, chicken or pig which will be outlined on a substrate prior to class. All students will use GOLDEN acrylics to block in and layer image. Collage techniques include soft gel gloss and acrylic paints. Stencil application will also be applied using heavy body acrylics.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Micah Goguen grew up in Central Georgia and obtained his B.A. in Art from Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville. Micah continued studies in figure drawing and painting at Kennesaw University and lived in the Atlanta area for 7 years producing and showing art at local venues. Residing currently in Macon, Ga., Micah focuses primarily on bringing art to the community and using art as a form of communication for those struggling to under stand and cope with life situations. He is currently obtaining his Masters in Art Therapy.
Stationed primarily at The Perry Art Center in Perry, Ga. and The St. Francis Art Center in Macon, Ga. , Goguen produces work while teaching art to both adults and children. He also volunteers time at the local community center and works with adults in alcohol and substance recovery as well as uprooted and traumatized children. Goguen also teaches a variety of classes at Kudzu Art Zone in Norcross, Ga. Using mural work, art for entertainment and art therapy for healing, Goguen collaborates with school systems, local shops, and non profits to help unify and most importantly “spread a message”.
Micah’s own artwork conveys his interest in people as he uses oil paints to mostly create expressive portraits. Bold color choices and organic movement signify his style and you can most often expect a large confrontational composition that forces the viewer to take notice and interact. Micah works in a range of media and teaches workshops in Oil and Acrylic Painting, Ceramics, Textiles and Drawing. He is working on several mural projects and also founded a group of artists which hang and display art in privately owned local businesses. The overall vision is to focus and rededicate back to a buy local, shop local mentality that strengthens community through unity and purpose.
