March 10 & 11-  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.
