Not Flat: Assemblage

Saturday, May 19, 2018
10:30 am - 3:00 pm
$80 Museum Members, $90 non-members (includes materials)

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!
