Open to all levels of artists from beginners to established practitioners, this workshop explores a world of exciting and beautiful materials and images. Guided by a personal theme such as a special place, or a particular concept you wish to convey, students will develop a personal visual vocabulary. Diverse collage techniques will be demonstrated and students will make their own collage materials during our first meeting using silhouette and stencil, transfer, drawing, texture, rubbings, and burnishing. Various techniques such as mosaic collage, decorative painting, layering with rice paper, and surface enhancements will be introduced as needed as you incorporate materials and personal expression into your collage creations. Take 10% off this class if you finalize your registration 3 or more weeks before the start date.
