Let experimentation and imagination guide this class!
We are excited to welcome Laura Pee back, for another special Collage workshop! Rummage through Laura's beautiful selection of papers - vintage, wood block, Japanese patterned, old magazines handmade marble papers and more.
This workshop will be split into two parts:
ONE: We will learn a simple paper folding technique to create our own sketchbook. Experimenting with a mixture of media we will explore marking making techniques, using variety of paints, collage, inks, oil pastels and more to create beautiful backgrounds and backdrops for our Metamorphosis characters.
TWO: While our sketchbook pages are drying we will be in story and character making mode. Inspired by Laura Pee's work, the work of famous Surrealist artists and the mysterious process in nature called Metamorphosis.
Looking through the pages of vintage magazines, such as Picturegoer, Rolling Stones and Post Review! We'll journey back to the last century, experimenting with patterns and textures.. creating weird and wonderful is encouraged!
We will combine objects and models from vintage magazines, to create our own peculiar and surreal characters. The process of cutting and re-combining photographs is this way, is know as Photomontage.
