Painting with Paper Workshop

Fri, Feb 24, 2017 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

In this one day workshop students will create striking collages by painting WITH paper. The focus will be on the use of intense and vibrant colors combined with design. We will work with a beautiful palette of color made from painted paper, printed paper and cloth. Using some traditional composition techniques we will explore layering, applying patterns and values. We will develop ways to loosen up with creative spontaneity in making a collage.
The workshop will generate several spontaneous small works that will form a visual vocabulary and finish with a piece that is approached in a slower process.

Some painting will be done.

All materials provided.
