The materials used will be the choice of each student. Participants are encouraged to use materials that they have. The workshop will address working with collage with papers, fabrics, found objects, past art work, pencil and charcoal drawing, and acrylic painting.  The objective of the workshop is to explore new mixed media techniques, entertain the idea of re-purposing prior work and excavate each student’s authentic voice in their art. Participants are responsible for supplies – a list will be provided. 

Teacher’s Note: I encourage everyone to incorporate mixed media collage into what they already do! I will work with each of you on whatever style project you would like to work on whether it is faces, figures, landscapes, still lives or abstracts. We collage on the first day and then draw and paint on the second day. There are no set rules in my workshops. I try to create a fun time that introduces new techniques and a comfortable learning environment to enhance where you already are. All levels are welcomed!
