Make Magic with Hand-Painting Papers & Collage

Do you want to play with paint like a kid again? Do you LOVE color? Join us as we paint papers using a gel plate technique to make a vibrant pallet of paper that you will use to "paint" your subject. Fluid acrylics, pens, stamps, stencils help to create wonderful textures on the papers that you will want to use again and again. Your paintings will be unique and highly prized by not only you, but by friends and family alike.

On day one you will learn how to create your paper pallet and give your papers their unique textures. You will also select a subject to paint and set up your painting surface. On day two you will learn how to tear your papers and apply them as collage to your subject! By the end of the day you should have a beautiful finished painting to take home.

The instructor will bring several subjects appropriate for this class to choose from, or you may bring a subject of your own to set up and paint.

There is time for a lunch break each day. You should bring your own lunch, and snacks.

Water, Coffee, Soda, and Snacks available by donation. Or bring your own.
