Participants will work from references and life to create exciting finished works with collage incorporated as an integral part of their drawings and paintings. Learn how to expand the boundaries of two dimensional art to create both abstract and realistic finished products making use of a wide range of techniques and materials. Participants will explore archival methods for improving existing watercolor, acrylic, and oil paintings with collage materials, including color photo copy, wall paper samples, fabric, and tissue. You will learn the right way to layer on a range of surfaces such as heavy weight paper, stretched canvas, and canvas board. You will also explore methods for combining materials including pen and ink, acrylic, watercolor and oil paints, and the order for application for various acrylic media. A unique photo transfer type technique will be explored that enables the transfer of existing charcoal, pencil, or pen drawings to canvas to set up multilayered paintings. This versatile approach allows for the creation of texture in the finished piece and can be used in a wide range of mixed media work. In the end, the sky is the limit for what you can do if you understand the process for accomplishing your vision. You can break the rules if you know how to; and the result is often unexpected and exciting.
