This is a two-day workshop. Monday we will create color sheets of paper to be used for collage using fluid acrylics, watercolors, and gels. After these sheets have dried we will form bowls which need to dry overnight. We will use some of the remaining sheets to create a collage painting. Bring a canvas or stretched watercolor sheet on which to apply collage, white glue like Elmers (not school quality), scissors, and water colors. On day two we will finish off the bowls and paintings. Wear painting clothes and bring a lunch for the first day. You will have plenty of sheets to take home and use for further projects. Fee: $30.00; bring a lunch. Register by Wednesday, June 1.
