Workshop Description:

This workshop is geared toward adults with little or no experience but all artists are welcome! We will view and discuss the exhibitions with a focus on the principles of art and design and then return to the studio to let the magic begin. We will be using a variety of media including acrylic, watercolor, crayons, pastel, and ink. We will use these materials as the foundation for our collages. It is definitely in the category of dance-like-nobody-is-watching – so join us to make a mess, get inspired and have fun in the process!

What to Bring:

You may bring a sketchbook if you have one to sketch ideas or look at for inspiration. We will provide all of the materials you will need to create the collages. Just be sure to dress for art-making – we will get messy! We will break for lunch so you may want to bring a lunch or money to by lunch nearby.
