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 in an in depth personal exploration of the medium. Students will use collage and paint to create unique works that express personal stories with symbolic meaning. Demonstrations will include archival collage technique and mapping out a painting. We will discover how to incorporate disparate elements into a new composition using line, color, form and pattern. Although group discussions and critiques will be integral to this workshop, individual work and one-on-one instruction will be the focus.
