COLLAGE EXPLORATIONS with Artist Christine Sauer
When: Friday, June 16 AND Saturday, June 17, 9:45am - 4pm
Please join me for this TWO DAY mixed media collage workshop at David Art in Metairie. We'll explore collage art using monoprints printed on Gelli plates with Golden Open acrylics. Open acrylics are a slow drying paint that allow for a longer “open” or working time and are perfect for this process. Printing on Gelli Plates is versatile, exciting and addicting! Participants will discover inventive ways to use stencils, stamps, masks and texture tools to create layered, unexpected combinations. Creating faux chine colle collages will also be part of the mix. Open acrylics are a slow drying paint that allow for a longer “open” or working time. This process lends itself to a variety of styles of art making.
Some of the prints made will be used as collage materials that will be cut and/or torn to create a collage on a choice of sizes, 12x16” - 18 x24" cradled panel. Design strategies for creating the collage, as well as a variety of ways to adhere and layer materials will be covered with demos and examples. Other prints can be used as artworks on their own or as material for other projects. You’ll leave with several finished or in-process pieces, extra collage materials for future use and lots of inspiration for further exploration. Please bring a notebook for note taking if desired. After the workshop, a downloadable file will be emailed to you with an outline of the workshop and workshop photos.
