Not Flat: Assemblage
Level: All levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced)
Collage meets assemblage in this workshop! Create highly textured, dimensional surfaces that can be painted, sanded, or glazed. Challenge your imagination and creative potential by using almost – but not quite – flat materials objects and materials provided, such as fabrics, small wood shapes, letters, metal found objects, corrugated paper and ephemera, string, etc. Use stronger materials to break up and alter the common rectangular shape of your artwork, and layer materials for added depth. Let your imagination run wild with the potential of unusual materials to inform your painting and mixed-media practices!

The Museum's studio program for adults offers a core curriculum in drawing, painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional media, and also explores the intersections between them. Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions. Classes meet for 3–12 weeks, and are designed for anyone interested in exploring specific media in depth; daylong workshops introduce new media or processes.
