Painting with Collage
In this class, students will be introduced to the process of creating a painting with collage elements. Students will start by creating an original drawing of their favorite subject – landscape, portrait, still life, animals, etc. Then, they will learn the process of painting with acrylics on canvas and go over fundamental techniques that will allow students to explore color, design, and shape. The last step will include collecting found papers and magazine cut-outs to incorporate into a final project. The goal of the class is for students to create a masterpiece in the span of 8 sessions. This class is part deconstruction and discovery, part reconstruction and treasure hunt.
