NEW! Collage and Beyond
Ever want to create artwork from images, decorative papers and art materials? Let mixed-media artist Ellen Gordon show you how to combine materials to create fascinating artwork. Drawing and painting will be integrated with collage. No experience necessary – just a willingness to try! Demonstrations and individual attention will be given as each student works on completing their mixed-media creations. Elements of design and composition theories will be taught each session, which will enhance each student’s way of thinking about art and creating art.
