Collage is an art form that can be mastered by all from the novice to the accomplished artist. Join award winning collage artist Lucy Fradkin for an in-depth personal exploration of the medium. Students will use collage, paint and a variety of materials to create unique mixed media works that express personal stories with symbolic meaning. Art techniques will focus on line, composition, color, pattern and the use of collage as a design element. Demonstrations will include mapping out a painting and archival collage techniques. Although students will work independently on projects, daily discussions and critiques will be integral to this workshop.
