Collage: Focus on Still Life (five-session online workshop)

Collage and mixed media can often be a catalyst for change in your work, and a refreshing way to handle familiar media. In this online class, we will look at artists who use collage in their work, explore the classic genre of the Still Life, and experiment working in collage from observation. We will work with different papers, your own discarded art, as well as any water-based media. Students will work towards developing a sense of continuity in a larger body of work.

Special notes:
This is an online class hosted through Zoom. We recommend that you download the free Zoom application on your computer, phone, or tablet in advance of the first class. You will receive a confirmation email containing a link to join the course via Zoom. The same link will be used each week.
