Workshop Overview

In a lively and supportive environment, students will create a portrait of a person or animal through the playful and forgiving medium of paper collage. Sandy will share what she has learned through her artistic journey and enthusiastically guide you through yours. You will learn about the basic principles of art: composition, shape, line, rhythm, color and value and then begin cutting and pasting until you have a finished piece. Each day will begin with a warm up exercise, and end with a helpful critique. Be prepared to work vigorously and to have a good time.
