COLLAGE EXTRAVAGANZA
In this four session workshop, we’ll explore exciting ways to transform paper and fabric with paint, mono print, and stencil techniques to create collage materials. Participants will use these to create intriguing mixed media collage art. We will spend the first two sessions creating collage materials using GOLDEN Open and Fluid acrylics, Jacquard fabric paints, oil sticks and more. The focus will be on enjoyment of the process and experimentation. We’ll use Gelli plates of different sizes, unusual handmade and commercial stencils, spray bottles, and Catalyst tools. During the second two sessions we’ll explore several design strategies plus a variety of ways to adhere and layer materials plus acrylic paint, to make intriguing artworks. You’ll leave with several finished or in-process pieces, plus extra collage materials for future use. Participants will create several collages on panel and paper. There will be time for one on one feedback during the workshop. Materials fee is $50. Materials and tools provided include all paints, oil sticks, mediums, brushes, 140lb watercolor paper, specialty papers, Gelli plates, several Ampersand Value Series Artist panels in smooth or canvas finish and miscellaneous items.
