From Collage to Watercolor
This exciting and exploratory workshop combines traditional watercolor techniques and digital collage as the foundation for watercolor painting. Students immerse themselves in the glitched found image of the 21st century and discover ways to reconstruct it into a dynamic, collaged composition. Through instruction in both paper collage and photoshop, a mockup plan is formalized through corrupting, cutting, repeating, and fragmentation, from which participants create an original water-media painting inspired by these sources.
