10 participants maximum
Cost: $275

This workshop will explore collage materials while adding the direct color medium of oil pastel, charcoal, or paint to build up layers of colors, tones, and values. These materials work naturally together. Working from portrait, still life, and landscape as subject matter students will develop provocative compositions based on a variety of materials. Students will push this medium to its limits to create small to medium sized artworks. The descriptive line will be used to create forms, like a Matisse, and areas of color will define the value and descriptions of forms, similar to Bonnard. All levels welcome. Materials list will be sent after registration.
