    In this class we will explore and produce elements to use in creating our individual works, focusing on line, edges, form and color as well as texture, transparency, pattern and scale to create unique images with collage. Through various exercises we'll begin to rethink how we approach and start to build our pieces by incorporating drawing and painting elements into our collage pieces. Come join me in exploring many different ways we can invent or reinvent the use of paper in collage, and adhere a multitude of possibilities. Leave your decorative papers tucked away and come create something original and all your own. All levels of experience welcomed.

    Maximum of 6 students. One 6 hour session, with a break for lunch.
