I am teaching a two-day Scribble Collage workshop at Guilford Art Center on June 25 and 26th in Guilford, CT. This time I am doing it a little differently. We will spend the first morning making stained tissue papers:
Which are beautifully luminous:
We will make patterns and textures on the stained papers:
And glitz them up with shimmer mists and metallic paints.
We will also paint light weight drawing papers, newspaper, and printed papers to make a big yummy stash of collage materials.
On the second day we will focus on creating collage compositions, working in small series.
I got such a strong response to my "Staining Papers" posts from a few months ago, that I decided to include it in this workshop. In my own work I use a lot of stained tissue paper in conjunction with my painted drawing papers. Thanks for visiting!
