Experience breakthroughs in versatility and flexibility as you:

  • SEE – observe techniques and materials demonstrated in new ways and combinations
  • SAMPLE – experiment with the strategies shown and build on them in your own personal style
  • APPLY – gather your results to create exciting compositions which highlight your new approaches

We will be creating designer papers in addition to using washi tape, photos, magazine pages, music sheets, etc.  We’ll experiment with paint, ink, printing, and found objects.

Some materials will be supplied by the instructor.   


NOTE: We will talk about the qualities of different paints, glues, and grounds in the first class. If you already have materials to bring, please do so. If not, you may use the instructor’s materials for the first class before deciding what you’d like to buy.

o Paints: water based (not oil) for faster drying.
o Papers: assorted – may range from thin to heavier for different effects.
