Of all the art teachers I have had, you were the best and the most inspiring. You have had the greatest influence on my work, and you continue to instruct and inspire me through Instagram. i also need to tell you that my friend Pam feels the same way about you and she has been doing some really amazing work recently.

In this new workshop, we will have a great time with several approaches to self-portrait collages. Working smaller or larger, up to 18 x 24", you can begin with a drawing, painting, old or new photograph, or a mirror and a blank page. Explore your inner and outer being, one piece of paper at a time. Using line, color, shape, texture, pattern, transparency, and other elements, I will guide you with demonstrations and ideas.  Collect and bring some papers and other materials that are important to you and describe who you are, it's all about you!
Portrait collages of other people can also be made. All levels are welcome.
$175. + Materials fee of $20. for paints and other materials & supplies provided. Materials List.

Several kinds of transparent materials will also be made. All methods will be demonstrated along with discussions in color theory and contemporary ideas. Materials list, Materials fee for shared materials
