Workshops at The Queen's Ink
I am so excited to be teaching at The Queen's Ink in Savage, MD, in June. We're offering three workshops: Collage in the Box Format, Unbinding the Visual Journal, and a new workshop, Collage Layering with Paint and Tissue.
Collage Layering with Paint & Tissue
Sunday, June 13th / 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Instructor: Guest Artist Jane Davies
Class fee: $70.00
In this workshop we will discover the possibilities of creating color, texture, and image spontaneously and intuitively using primarily tissue-weight papers, paint, gesso, and drawing tools. We start by creating a basic composition in tissue paper, and then build layers by brushing, rolling, sponging, stamping, and scraping paint between more tissue and collage papers. We'll also explore techniques of subtractive collage, tearing and scratching through the layers to reveal depth and complexity. We'll use drawing and collage imagery to finish the compositions, bringing them into focus and balance. This is an approach to collage that emphasizes process and open-ended exploration rather than a particular goal. Come join the fun, and discover a new sense of freedom in your artistic endeavors!
