The Collage Class
August 12 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until August 13, 2019
August 12 – 13: Explore the world of color and shape in this two-day acrylic painting collage workshop. Through a series of fast and fun exercises, participants will expand their knowledge of color mixing, while building a “palette” of colored paper. The colored papers will then be used to create collage paintings. Students are encouraged to bring their own photos or sketches to serve as inspiration for the collage paintings.
This class is suitable for all levels.
