Color Workshop:

Saturday & Sunday, January 18 & 19. 10-4pm 


I am often asked to teach this workshop.  Mixing color is a lost art.  In this two day workshop we will learn to mix colors from scratch using acrylic paint.  Participants will be asked to choose a palette of 12 colors.  We will paint a variety of papers with these colors which will be used in the future for collage.  Paints and paper included, $210. Parking available.  Bring a lunch.

Emphasis will be on finding a personalized lexicon of images and colors.  Materials included, parking available and good company a certainty.  This is a wonderful class for beginners wanting to get started and seasoned artists looking for new ideas.  8 Weeks, $245 includes all materials.

Class Descriptions:

• Classic Collage:  All ‘classic’ collage workshops will begin with a drawing, painting or printmaking exercise to loosen up and get out of the   
  head and into the body.  The materials we make will then be cut up for collage.  Open and recommended for all levels.

• Themed Collage: This is where collages are made to emulate a style or atmosphere of a certain  theme.  For example, in “Minimalism &
  Collage” I will present the history of the art movement Minimalism, then we will make spare and simple painted papers to create collages
  stripped down to their essentials.  Great for all levels.

• Minimalism & Collage: Stripped of static and unnecessary noise, using a palette of creams and grays, make spare and simple collages.

• Wassily Kandinsky & Collage: Abstract, dynamic, explosive with a sense of whirling energy systems.  We will explore  Kandinsky and make
  collages that reflect his sensibility.

• Springtime Explosion: Using a palette of spring colors we will make Paste Paper - the technique of covering papers with a mixture that can 
  be patterned, combed, textured and stamped.  Collages will be made with the papers we make.
