PAINTERLY COLLAGE WORKSHOPS

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:
In this workshop various papers and student made monotypes and drawings are used to make beautiful collaged mixed media paintings. A collage base is made with houseplant, tissue papers and newsprint on wood cradled board. Collaged paintings emerge by interweaving successive layers of papers, drawing, house paint and water based polyurethane. Layers are added and subtracted to create a more varied and interesting surface.  These pieces may be used later as a base for oil base mixed media. For additional information, email Sara: sarapostart@gmail.com
