Mixed Media and Collage Explorations with Paula Most and Karole Nicholson
The beauty of mixed media and collage is the limitless possibilities and approaches. In this workshop, presented by members Paula Most and Karole Nicholson, attendees have the opportunity to explore a variety of techniques using similar supplies and tools with distinctly unique results.
Paula will demonstrate the incorporation of some type of print (transfer, monotype, linoleum) in addition to the selection of papers, layering and juxtaposing them to create the artwork. Key to this process is creating textural and tonal surfaces of fragmented shapes, colors and lines using only torn and cut papers.
Karole will share her technique of creating an under painting on canvas, applying collage, adding paint, subtracting layers, mixing mediums such as acrylic paints, inks, watercolor, crayons and more. Both instructors will share finishing techniques.
A magical tour awaits you for these two, 1/2 day sessions including short demos, with time to explore these approaches. Experience with drawing, painting, or design is helpful, however, beginners are absolutely welcome. You are encouraged to experiment, even bring along an older painting for “re-do” consideration (waterbased media only). This workshop is a valuable addition to your current practice.
