Examples for collage art class

Wednesday night, June 27, 6-9pm. If you love collage, this class is a must!

See details about this class here and register here!

I thought I'd show you a few examples of what we'll be doing...

First, we'll get out the Gelli plates (c) and make original gelatin prints. Here are a few examples of gelli prints and what can be done with these amazing papers...The flowers on this art journal page are all made out of "gelli deli" prints...

And here is a closeup of the collage elements:

We're also going to explore a number of other ways to create unique paper designs.

You can see I have already cut out pieces for collage work in a couple of those pieces!

And here's just a couple of other examples of how you can collage with papers:

I will show you many, many more examples of how I collage with my own papers...and you will get a chance to create your own collage too in this class. It's going to be fast paced and messy—but at the end of the night you'll have your own original collage papers, a collage and tons of ideas and inspiration.

You'll find full details here—and you can register here. Our space is of course limited to six students so if you want to join us, sign up now!
