Collage for Scaredy Cats
Date: Thursday, March 30
Time: 10:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Do you have trouble starting a collage? Not sure what techniques or colors to incorporate? Do you freeze up when it comes time to actually glue down an image? Then this class is for you!
In this exercise we will focus on the different steps of making a collage (i.e. stencils, paint, tape transfer, scratch/sand, etc…). To create our collage, we will randomly select a technique and limit ourselves by spending only five minutes on each technique. When time is up, you need to commit and move on to the next technique, building upon each previous step. Instead of speed dating we will be speed collaging! Your finished pages can be made into cards, a book, or used for a variety of art projects.
Be prepared to get messy, so bring your apron and a desire to explore. Please come to class with a theme in mind; which can be as simple as a color theme. Other good themes are: butterflies, travel, vintage, spring, fashion…
Students should bring: Craft Mat, brayer 2"-3", Glue stick (large glue sticks will last you longer), scissors, brushes, stamp pad, craft paints (you only need three coordinating colors plus white or cream), favorite mark making tools (pens, markers, pencils, paint pens, etc.), small scraps of paper (hand painted, handmade, decorative, scrapbook, etc.), fun images you would like to use and ephemera (washi tape, charms, ribbons, buttons, etc.). I will also bring images & paper, stencils & stamps, and a little bling to share. Also, if you have these, please bring: Your favorite stamps and stencils to match your theme and a Gelli plate. No stressing allowed!! This class is about the creative process and having fun, not the specific supplies.
