Workshop Content: Learn to create faces and figures from bits and pieces of magazines and collected papers. No drawing experience is necessary. You can do this!
Day one: Learn various ways to create faces and figures using magazines as a source of inspiration, imagery, and composition. We’ll start with quick, intuitive exercises to relax the mind while learning the basics. Begin with an image or idea that inspires you and create a composition around it using magazine images as the backbone. Develop a purpose-driven palette of artful papers from magazines, deli paper, tissue, and paint for use in developing your collage.
Day two: Learn to paint directly onto a collage to personalize the images and develop the composition.
Day three: will be reserved for completing your work. Kathy will share tips on finishing, sealing, and displaying your masterpiece.

Biography: I love to create with paper — cut, torn, sliced, ripped, painted, and reassembled. I am particularly drawn to the look, color, texture and malleable nature of torn magazines and painted papers. Images originally meant to convey one message in a magazine can be used to communicate something entirely new in a work of art. An automobile advertisement might become part of a face. A face might become part of an abstract image. Disparate images can be used to tell a story or to extract personal meaning. Discovering hidden images embedded in collage creates a mystery that I simply can’t resist! I have been collaging for 15 years and never grow tired of it. Come explore with me.
