Workshop Overview

Capture landscapes and architecture using maps and magazine pages to create striking realistic or imaginary art scenes with or without buildings. Discover how to use recycled paper like paint to create a unique work of art. Landscapes, houses, barns, grain elevators, bridges, cityscapes…no limit. You will be guided through the technical challenge of making realistic renderings from recycled materials and produce one or two frame-ready works of art. No drawing skills needed. Children must be accompanied by a participating adult.

About the Instructor(s)

Susan Schenk has been teaching a new form of collage for 10 years, helping students who want to paint with paper to create frame ready works without extensive drawing skills or expensive supplies. Focusing on shapes, she guides students to create representational works using paper as a form of mosaic.
