Combine painting techniques with collage to produce pieces with texture and depth. Students work on watercolor paper and canvas as they learn how to use papers, acrylics, inks, and other materials as means of elevating the interest of both abstract and representational pieces. Experiment with collaging into painted surfaces as well as painting on collaged surfaces.

Some previous experience with acrylic painting is required for this class. A kit is available to order from the instructor. Please refer to the supply list for ordering information.
