Create an A4 piece of collaged art honouring an ancestor or special place or event in local history. Your finished piece will be able to be hung by ribbon, mounted on canvas or a book cover, or perhaps framed. We will spend 2 hours exploring new ways to celebrate local history artfully by using paper collage techniques and sharing a variety of ideas for mixed media embellishments and composition.
It was on Tuesday night and I am happy to say that we all had a wonderful time. I started the evening feeling 95% excited and 5% nervous, but that soon passed - and I was introduced as "a talented mixed media artist" which was so lovely. I said I'd take a maximum of 12 in the class, and we reached that number.
I gave them all a base pack of papers and class notes
I talked to them for a while about different papers, layering, embellishments, gel mediums, and composition tips. Then it was their turn. It was great to see everyone dive in and have a go, and walk around looking at each others' work and share experiences. Click on any photo to see it larger
