Collage Workshop

Last week saw the conclusion of Paste Paper, Collage, and Painting, a workshop led by Sandy Taylor that explored many mixed media materials and strategies for making art. The four sessions were held through June, July, and August, with about half a dozen participants joining in the fun. The workshop started with artists learning how to make their own decorated papers for collage, using such materials as paste, textural tools, paint, crayons, markers, and collected items. Next, these items were used to create a small collage, and in the last stage (seen above) artists created larger collages, combined with paint. The participants enjoyed learning about the process and materials. Perhaps this workshop will be offered again in the future- check the main website for information about the many art classes held at the Boatworks.
