March 6 to April 10, 2014
6 Weeks on Thursdays, 11 am to 2 pm
$125 (includes start up materials)
Learn the joys of mixed media collage. The workshop will address working with papers, fabrics, found objects, and past art work. The materials used will be the choice of each student, but students are encouraged to incorporate some of their own prior art work into new pieces. The objective of the workshop is to explore new mixed media techniques and excavate each student’s authentic voice in their art.
