Collage with Pamela Lanza
APRIL 11 — Saturday, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
East Wing | Studio Classroom
$75 for members, $85 for non-members

From Dada to Abstract Expressionism and beyond, collage has been a favorite tool of artists in all media. It is art for those who can’t draw a line, as well as art for those who want to add a different technique to their artistic repertoire. In this workshop, participants will construct one large collage using spontaneity and intuition as guides, then isolate beautiful compositions from the bigger one. This workshop teaches proper use of adhesives and sealants, how to experiment with design in composition and encourages the spirit of discovery and the element of surprise. Participants will take home six to ten finished pieces, with two favorites mounted to wooden panels. Please bring cut-out collage images and we will provide the rest. (Please email the instructor for specifics:

All materials and snacks are included in the cost. Class size is limited and advanced registration is required.
