Just about everyone has done collage. Maybe you ripped up paper by color and filled in the shapes of a drawing. Maybe you cut out images of objects and created an assemblage of sorts. This class will be the Next Step in collage.
Starting with magazine pages, book pages and tissue paper to create an abstract art piece, we’ll add designs and color using markers and ink. We’ll also cover an easy way to put it all together. The piece of art we create in this all-day class will open the door to other ways we can manipulate paper and color in our artwork.
We will spend the morning creating; enjoy a box lunch together while our artworks dry in preparation for the finishing touches in the afternoon session.

I have been cutting and pasting paper for as long as I can remember. In high school (long ago) I spent a long time playing with tissue paper, both in creating translucent layers and using art tissue to leave color behind.
My other love is pen and ink. From a start with India ink and dip pens, through acrylic ink and crow quills, paint pens, and alcohol pens and watercolor markers, I’ve looked for the products I could use to enhance collage work.
Combining these mediums together has led to many happy hours. Along the way, I have experimented with ways to enhance both the process and the product. Join me for this fun class and see what you can do.
