How To Make A Mixed Media Tulip Collage inspired by Robert Kushner

Artists of Any Age Can Make This Cool Art!

Let's RECYCLE some old metallic paper scraps to make this super cool Mixed Media tulip inspired by Robert Kushner!

About the Artist: Robert Kushner

Robert Kushner is a contemporary American artist from California. Contemporary means he's still in the studio making art today! The paintings that Robert Kusnher does are REALLY big, sometimes 20 feet tall. His style of painting is floral, but very decorative. He uses a lot of patterns in the backgrounds of his paintings, and a lot of times he uses gold leafing on his paintings. Gold leaf is super thin sheets of actual real gold! (If you have gold leafing, you can use that on your painting today!) To learn more about Robert Kushner and see some of the art he does today, check out his website.
