Workshop Overview

Bring some fluttering nature inside and use recycled papers to create striking, realistic portraits of birds and butterflies. Discover how to use recycled paper as "paint" to create a unique work of art. You will be guided through the technical challenge of making realistic renderings from recycled materials, and produce two frame-ready works of art. No drawing skills needed. We will make stencils and templates to create sophisticated looking results from a deceptively simple technique that you can use at home to create more.

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.
