Collage Faces: A One-Day Workshop

I hope you'll join me for a new in-person class I'm teaching on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at a private home in Hanover, MA.

61-wm
Collage Faces is a super fun one-day workshop. To begin, you will learn all about the basic structure of the face. Then through a series of easy exercises you will learn how to render a face in cut paper collage. We will cover the subtleties of shading, eyes, and all the details that make your collage face really pop!

We'll discuss abstraction versus realism and I'll help you discover and embrace your own personal style of creating faces.

Supplies to Bring:

  • Multiple surfaces to collage onto – canvas board, watercolor paper, wood, art journal, cardstock, etc. – whatever you prefer.
  • Paper for collage – found papers, hand painted papers, etc. – bring more than you think you’ll need. Try to bring a full palette of colors.
