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. We will explore aspects of what makes strong and beautiful art through shape, value, line, texture, color and most importatly contrast. Let go of your inner critic, come and have fun in a relaxed environment while enriching your visual skills. 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, including gelli plate, monotype, collograph, and trace monotype 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 is encouraged! Demonstrations and individual discussions will help each student to create work using their individual aesthetic and ideas. All levels are welcome.
