Paper Paintings Collage Workshop
with Elizabeth St. Hilaire
at The Beautiful and Historic Lakeside Inn in Mt. Dora, FL
January 26 - 28, 2018
Join us for this FIRST EVER 3-Day Pet Collage Workshop!!!
Elizabeth 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 experience is helpful. All levels are welcome.
A video tutorial in regards to homework will be emailed to you once workshop minimums have been met and no less than 30 days out from the start of the class.
