Paper Paintings Collage Workshop

with Elizabeth St. Hilaire 

at The Beautiful and Historic Lakeside Inn in Mt. Dora, FL

January 19 - 21, 2018

Pets Collage


The self professed "Collage Queen" will guide you through working on a mixed media collage portrait of man's best friend - not limited to dogs or cats!  Plan to work on whatever "pet" makes you happy, birds, fish, ferrets included!  

During this comprehensive workshop you will learn a unique figurative mixed media collage technique.  Emphasis will be on defining form using light and shadow, and treating every paper tear as a brush stroke.  Students will create impressionistic collages that look like paintings.    

Create your hand-painted paper palette through Gelli Plate printing, staining, stamping and patterning that will be torn up and glued down over an acrylic underpainting.  

This class is focused on learning and growing creatively in a FUN environment.   No prior collage experience is necessary. Some painting would be helpful, but not imperative. Some preparation will need to be done prior to class, this information will be on the supply list.

Elizabeth St. Hilaire  is a member of the National Collage Society and Atlanta Collage Society. Her piece "Out To Pasture" won First Place in The Artist's Magazine All Media contest category of collage, 2010. Her work has been featured in: Southern Living, Orlando Arts, Winter Park, Orlando, and Cloth Paper Scissors magazines and Collage in All Dimensions(book) by Gretchen Bierbaum.
