Workshop Content: Explore a new way to look at and build the art of collage with an eye towards using color, shape, pattern and composition as a means to construct an image that is out of the ordinary mindset of this time-honored medium. Whether your interest is landscape, florals, still life, figurative or abstraction, this class will guide you step-by-step in using paper as a means to paint.
Day one will feature an introduction and short demo with the instructor then focus on establishing a color, shape and pattern vocabulary for your area of interest. Day two will have attendees begin their main collage and focus on the heroic area of the composition as the focal point building density with a lot of detail and day three will bring the piece together for the final editing of the image with an eye towards making new compositional connections. The class will end early to allow for a critique of work produced. This class will offer attendees an abstracted view of realism or total abstraction if that is preferred—you’ll get to choose which way you want to go. Attention will be paid to building detail within the image.

Biography: Carll began her career as an illustrator and graphic designer, with a strong background in art history. During her career as a designer in Atlanta, Carll focused on freelance work with clients that included: Coca-Cola, Georgia Pacific, Canada Life Insurance and Southwire. In 1992, Carll began private study with the late painter Ouida Canaday who founded the Atlanta Piedmont Arts Festival. In 1999, Carll quit the graphic design industry to become a full-time painter. From that point onward she evolved as a self-taught artist. Carll’s main influences are Picasso, Matisse, Richard Diebenkorn & Mark Bradford.
Carll began her painting career with very colorful figurative work which slowly evolved into non-representational abstract work that is based on the concept of urban expansion & erosion. Carll’s first gallery representation began in 1997 with Bender Fine Art Gallery in Atlanta and is now represented by six galleries in the United States. Carll’s work has been acquired by a diverse group of private and corporate collectors in the United States, South America, Europe and Asia.
