March 10 & 11,  9:30-4:00 - Letting Go! The Joy of Collage - Acrylics and Mixed Media
Collage is all about  the joyful, experimental, and freeing process of cutting, arranging, and pasting painted papers, yet it’s a meaningful enough process to have satisfied Picasso, Braque, Matisse, and many other well known artists. All aspects of what makes strong and beautiful art will be addressed in a fun and relaxed environment. Let go of your inner critic, come and have fun while enriching your visual world. There are no mistakes in collage, only adjustments and revisions. 
All levels are welcome.

April 7 & 8,  9:30-4:00 - Printmaking Without a Press:
Collage Papers and Fine Art Prints
Learn how to make high quality original prints without a press, and with easy soap and water cleanup. Using Golden acrylic paints and other water-based media, several methods of printmaking without a press will be presented with clear step-by-step demonstrations. Students can combine these methods for unlimited potential, using lighter weight papers for collage and other paper arts, or use heavier printmaking paper for finished art prints. Lightweight fabrics can also be used. Experimenting and mixed media is encouraged! Demonstrations and individual discussions will help each student to create work using their own ideas and aesthetics. All levels are welcome.

This beginning or refresher course is geared for students with limited or no experience with watercolor painting. We will explore the unique properties of this magical medium through transparent washes and layering, mingled washes, incorporating shapes of untouched paper for brilliance, and brushwork. You will gain a solid foundation for whatever path you take with watercolor by learning these basic skills. Discussion of materials, color theory, and the history of watercolor painting are included as we begin with a solid foundation of monochromatic exercises, and then explore two and three color exercises and simple compositions. Group critiques, individualized instruction, and demonstrations are included. No drawing skills are necessary.
