Mixed Media/Collage Workshop

Instructor: Deb Shmerler

In this workshop you will get your creative juices flowing as you combine a variety of materials, paint and collage techniques to form unique mixed media works. Experimenting with a variety of subject matter, participants will learn to expand and broaden their understanding of collage techniques, and sharpen their design/visual art vocabulary.

Your challenge will be to practice finding visual and conceptual connections between images, textures, colors, etc. in order to combine them into cohesive, meaningful collages. You will be able to take this knowledge and apply it to your own classroom projects.
