LOCAL>> Process: Collage to Paint – with Laurel Shear
Online workshop: Develop a deeper understanding of your own artistic process
8 Mondays: March 29 – April 17, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
This is an online workshop via zoom. Zoom invite sent after registration.
$280 for non-members / $224 for members
In this course, I will share my own artistic process, from starting with collage to the final painting.
Together we will take photographs or use found photos to make collages which will serve as the inspiration for painting. Through collaging we will experiment with composition and color relations.
The goal is to develop a deeper understanding of your own artistic process, learn new ways to approach abstraction and image-making, and build good studio habits to sustain your creativity.
