DATES: September 7 – 18, 2015
SKILL LEVEL: I – III
CONCEPT: Explore the process of transforming small preliminary collages and paintings into larger works on canvas. In this workshop, we focus on developing work from the beginning stages into larger, more fully formed paintings. Students have ample studio time for experimentation and “The Juarez” method of layering paint and collage will be demonstrated.
MEDIA & TECHNIQUES: Beginning with small sketches and models, students are free to use multiple media and a mixture of paint and collage will be encouraged. Finding source material will be discussed including imagery from books, magazines and found materials.
ACTIVITIES: We gather collage materials, textures, and printed matter from around the area. We will be painting every day with individual and group critiques.
