In this one-day workshop, we will create simple collages and then bring them to life by attaching them to a "chunky" thick canvas, which we will transform - resulting in a block-like structure, with the collage seeming to wrap arond the sides - hint, it's actually paint! We'll be working small, but with a big, chunky impact.

Instructor will provide a "chunky" 2.5" deep canvas, watercolor paper, adhesives, scissors, paper cutter, gesso modeling paste, fixative and an assortment of mark making supplies.  Additional canvas will be available for purchase.

STUDENT NEEDS TO BRING: Assortment of collage papers mainly book pages, old papers, old artwork to cut up, etc. NO GLOSSY magazines, and a few acrylic paints (craft paints are fine) that are in the same color palette.  Various sizes of brushes.
