Painting/Collage - Mixed Media

A fun and highly creative approach to mixed media collage. Similar to the art process used by Eric Carle, in The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and other noted collage artists.

Produce your own painted materials and deconstruct them by tearing them or cutting them up. Reconstruct them as lively compositions with added materials such as oil pastel, charcoal, pencils, fabric, printed material, stamping and stenciling.
All levels are welcome. The instructor will provide group demos and individual attention. Experimentation and personal themes are encouraged

Acrylics are the basis of the work, on varied surfaces. Alternatives to brushes are explored.
