Discover the fun creating magical, crazy, funky solo collages or mixed with other media like paint, markers and more.  Learn how to express an idea through the juxtaposition of images you already have as well as different substrates and adhesives, how to work with photographic transparencies, painted papers, rubbings, magazines, ephemera, napkins and more. This is a hands-on workshop with many demonstrations but still plenty of time to make art. We start the morning qmaking some painted papers, rubbings and selecting imagery found in magazines, old books, junk mail, napkins and bits and bobs. I will bring some ephemera and transparencies for student’s use. Please bring a collection of some paper materials that you love for texture, shape, and / or color.


The Collage Workshop is ideal for anyone who wishes to use collage as a tool for self-expression. Beginners and more experienced artist alike are welcome. You don't need to be pro to have fun. The only requirement is a willingness to play and explore. The main thing is to spend some time between scissors, glue and paper, to work with our hand and having a good time.



Paint, markers, glue, ephemera, transparencies, old sewing patterns.



- Magazines you love because of texture, shape, and/or color, tissue-papers, napkins, scissors with a good sharp point and/or an xacto knife and self-healing mat.

- Two to four watercolor papers approximately 8 x 9 inch as substrate (I recommend 140 lb, it warps less) or if you don't mind the color you could use cardboard as a substrate.

- Apron and or glasses if desired
