A comprehensive one-day workshop that will take you through the collage process step-by-step. A great prerequisite to this class is the Gel Plate Monoprinting for Collage Paper, so that you can bring your own papers to class. I will provide a sampling of papers for sharing for those who do not make their own papers. Colors of provided papers will, of course, be limited. You may also bring colored, decorative papers from the art supply store, or papers you may have already painted or monoprinted. No magazines, scrapbook paper, or shiny paper please. At the end of this workshop, you will have the skills and confidence to create an impressionistic, painterly collage - your very own Paper Painting!
