Class Coming Soon – Three-Dimensional Art on Canvas

Class Coming Soon – Three-Dimensional Art on Canvas

I’m teaching a class, Three-Dimensional Art on Canvas, on March 3rd. I usually refer to my art as Assemblage Art on Canvas but, not all understand that terminology… therefore, the change to Three-Dimensional. You will choose from the two designs here and we will provide you a complete kit for you to use as you create!

And now for the official announcement we are sharing on social media…

A side view of Choice One

On March 3rd, join us for a hands-on class creating three-dimensional wall art utilizing found objects. Each participant will choose from the pictured two designs upon registration. A complete kit to create your chosen design will be provided at class. We’ll concentrate first on layering our backgrounds and then build our design. We will also provide your choice of inspirational tags to include in your design. All supplies and tools are provided in this four-hour class. Class size is limited to ten. There are five available kits of each design so register early to reserve your choice. Beginners to experienced Mixed Media artists will enjoy creating with us!

Instructor: Assemblage artist Vicky Hensley of Art Creations by Vicky

Vicky Hensley has been artsy all her life and now creates primarily in two mediums that are distinctly separate yet cross into one another – Assemblage Art on Canvas and Mixed Media. She often refers to her art as Three-Dimensional Canvas art. Fascinated with blending “found objects” and other mediums into one art piece, she started creating her Assemblage Wall Art in 2009. You can discover more about Vicky’s work at Art Creations by Vicky.

A Creative Mess

A Creative Mess

There’s no way around it. When I’m designing Assemblage Wall Art, things on my worktable are a mess. It’s an organized mess but I’m sure there are those who would argue that it just looks messy.

This art form requires not just one palette knife but several – same with tweezers, palettes, paint brushes of varying sizes and types, and the tools of the trade – wire cutters, measuring tape, metal cutters, scissors (at least two depending on purpose), bottle sprayer, box cutter, level, adhesives (definitely more than one), dimensional paste, and paint – not just a blue, yellow, green, red and so on but sets of paint – one metallic – one brighter – one or two your usual paint choice – and another that reflects light differently depending on position. And that’s only the beginning!

My husband built this worktable with shelving for me 27 years ago. It’s seen a lot of use. I now have three worktables in my studio but this is by far my favorite.

Then you have your canvas and your design elements. I must have choices as I design. So, that means lots of little pieces laying out to inspire me as I choose each addition. And then, metal paint and metallic waxes in case I want to age or highlight a particular piece.

And then there are the special lights, craft mat, jars for water, wet wipes, paper towels – well, you get the picture.

And I savor it all. This is MY place – my space for creating – my place to escape – my world.

Happy Creating!


Crowned Whimsey

Crowned Whimsey

My newest – a combination of violet highlighted with blue and bronze spritzes. It’s the first time for me to use this color combination but it won’t be my last. Now for the official description.

This whimsical Assemblage piece features a crowned vintage heart surrounded by various leaves, filigrees, buttons, berries, and found objects. Its quote tag adds to the fun with “Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures.

On a 7.0″ by 5.0″ gallery wrapped canvas, its depth is 2.25″. Its background is textured with stenciled modeling paste and finished off with a number of paints, spritzes, and waxes. The basic background color is violet and the spritzes add a bit of blue and bronze.

Hangers are attached and, while I prefer the no-frame look, this Assemblage Art piece is ready for framing. It will also display nicely on an easel.

Dimensions: 7” x 5” x 2.25″


Available for purchase at my Etsy shop

All art sold at Art Creations by Vicky is the work of artist Vicky Hensley and one of a kind. 

Gallery wrapped means the canvas in 1.5″ deep rather than the usual .75″
Embellishments overlap and lay on top of others to create design dept
Berries are painted and then highlighted to coordinate with the overall color scheme.
A crowned heart – such a lovely sentiment
With an overall depth of 2.25″, this makes an impressive wall hanging.
