Lucy Fradkin

Workshop Description

Fee: $425
Enrollment limited to 12 students
Please request supply list

Join award-winning collage artist Lucy Fradkin to learn how to incorporate collage into unique artworks which express personal stories with symbolic meaning. Students will create mixed media works on paper or board using paint and collage. 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 group discussions and critiques will be integral to this work-shop, individual work and one-on-one instruction will be the focus.
