Collage and Mixed Media

with Xenia Hodza

This is a workshop of endless possibilities. Using an unrestricted variety of found materials – papers, photos, fabrics, and more -- you will create a unified work.  We explore compositional strategies, juxtaposition, synthesis, and develop technical skills.  Introductions to the history of Mixed Media will be presented for inspiration. Whether you’re an experienced artist or an absolute beginner, collage offers you a jumpstart to creativity. Beginning and advanced levels are welcome.  This workshop takes place on two consecutive Saturdays; May 4 and Saturday May 11.

Saturdays, May 4 - May 11
9:30 am - 4 pm
This class will take place on two consecutive Saturdays with a lunch break each day
