In this workshop we will start by making our own collage papers using paint, oil pastels, graphite and mark making tools. Using these papers and other images, you will build a painting using shape, line, color and composition to create a beautiful mixed media painting.
The benefit of using collage in a painting is to create texture and other visual interest. It is even more rewarding when it is your own hand-made collage papers. You will see how the opportunities are endless and how fun it is to create papers and use them, along with paint and other tools to build a unique, expressive, mixed media painting.
