Workshop Content: Combine paint and collage to create a fun and colorful mixed media landscape painting. Use watercolor and/or acrylic paints along with a variety of patterned collage papers to add texture and design interest. Learn an easy way to make your own stamps to create decorative papers. Demonstrations along with individual instruction will encourage everyone to explore their own artistic expression.
Supply List: Watercolor and/or acrylic paints, brushes, water container, paper towels and pencil. White gesso and matte medium with an old brush. Any stamps you have.
Two or more sheets of 140lb or 300 lb watercolor paper, 11×14 or larger if desired. I highly recommend Arches watercolor paper for best results! Bring any collage papers you already have (patterned tissue paper, scrapbook paper, mulberry paper, rice paper, hand painted papers, etc) along with a few sheets of white tissue paper.
Materials to make stamps will be supplied.
