    Students will need to supply these materials


    Lean into the power of nonrepresentational work with the tools of collaging. In this class we will experiment with different techniques to create visually engaging pieces that utilize upcycled materials as well as abstract paintings we will make together. This way of working can be incredibly freeing and intuitive, allowing you to express your creativity without the pressure of rendering a subject. Great for folks who are in a creative rut, or simply need a way to unwind and let loose in your sketchbook. You will learn principles of design such as composition, shape, color, and balance alongside abstract drawing and painting techniques. There are plenty of opportunities for collaboration in these processes, so sign up with a friend!

    Maximum of 8 students. Three 2 1/2 hour sessions.

    *I’ve listed my recommendations here but I am very flexible in terms of what “type” of each material you get. The item in bold is the necessity and if you have something in that category, bring it along! You can always get something else with your 20% discount at the store if your item doesn’t work.

    · A sketchbook! - 9x12 Drawing is my favorite, bonus if you’ve already done some work in it

    · A page you’d like to cover up – simply bookmark this page in your sketchbook

    · One large piece of mixed media paper – at least 11x17 but bigger is better!

    · Paint – acrylic, watercolor, or gouache. No oils. It doesn’t have to be fancy.

    · Brushes – one 1” flat, and two of other shapes / sizes that intrigue you

    · Glue Stick

    · Ephemera for collaging – old pieces you’d be okay with cutting up, mail your loved ones have sent that you don’t want to throw away but don’t want on your fridge anymore, newspaper cutouts from your favorite comic, pages you used to test all the pens in your junk drawer, flight cards from breweries, etc.

    · Scissors or X-Acto & Straight Edge – either will work

    · Drawing materials – pencils, colored pencils, markers, paint pens, etc. I usually recommend bringing whatever you’re most excited to use right now
