Workshop Overview

If you’ve made abstract collages, you are ready to take mixed media to a new level. Learn to use torn and cut maps and magazine pages to create striking, realistic landscapes. Discover how to use recycled paper as if it is 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 one or two frame-worthy works of art.

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.
