Experience a new approach to art-making, create drawings and
paintings with the intention of tearing up the results for a unique collage! Participants will investigate abstraction by exploring the galleries, discussing the elements and principles of design and creating collage materials using a variety of media including acrylic, watercolor, crayons, pastel, and ink. We will use these materials as a foundation for our collages. It is definitely in the category of dance-like-nobody-is-watching – so join us to make a mess, get inspired and have fun in the process!
