2017 Workshops

NEW CLASS
NEW APPROACHES IN COLLAGE
4 Sessions over 8 weeks in the Studio in Pioneer
April 5, April 19, May 3 and May 17.  9 to 4 each day.
Collage is an exciting, ever changing medium.  Starting with different papers and textures, you can add
your own textural interpretations that express what you want to say about your subject. Using gesso,
gloss medium, cellophane, salt, inks, found objects, natural objects, and more, you can create your own
textured papers that you can then use in a collage to express your vision.
This workshop explores different ways to make your own textured papers and how to use them
to create a one-of-a-kind image. The class is scheduled once every 2 weeks for 8 weeks to give
the student time to explore and understand the many varied ways to bring a subject to life using the
techniques learned in class. There will be assignments between class sessions to help expand your
exploration and start you looking closely at your subject matter for clues to how to bring it to life.
Using your own photographs, we will work toward creating several exciting images.  $220
Class size is limited. Supply lists and additional information is available upon receipt of registration.
LANDSCAPE INTREPRETATIONS
July 21, 22, 23 in the Studio in Pioneer.  9 to 4 each day
Landscapes fascinate us all. They remind us of places we’ve been, places we would like to go,
special places that we return to again and again.  This watercolor collage class will focus only
on landscape. We will explore collage techniques using a variety of rice papers and other collage
materials. Using your own photographs, this workshop will start with designing your image, through
cropping, finding a focal point, and establishing values, to a finished piece full of textures and depth.  $145
Class size is limited. Supply lists and additional information is available upon receipt of registration.
EXPRESS YOURSELF
October 6, 7, 8 in the Studio in Pioneer.  9 to 4 each day
As artists we usually look at a scene and try to paint what we see, not how we feel about it.
This workshop is about breaking out of the norm.  Explore different ways to approach texture,
color and composition to make a statement about how you feel about what you see.
Maybe it’s a change of color scheme, or perhaps the addition of some unusual textures,
or portraying the scene from a different angle. Learn to explore and stretch your
imagination.  The effort can result in a very personal and exciting image.    $145
Class size is limited. Supply lists and additional information is available upon receipt of registration.
