Collage is a versatile art technique that involves endless choices and possibilities for creating art pieces by assembling different materials onto a two-dimensional surface. This class will focus first on creating “raw materials” – painted and textured papers that we will combine to create unique, personal, painterly collages. Through demonstrations and experimentation, students will learn many techniques to create raw materials, such as glazing, stippling, gesso printing, mark-making, and pigment scraping. Class will then explore basic collage techniques to create professional, well-designed works of art. No previous experience required. See website for materials list.
Fall Impressions Cyanotype Workshop – AWF21602

Make beautiful blue cyanotype prints on fabric and watercolor paper with this fun and easy two-day workshop for adults! Cyanotypes, otherwise known as blueprints, are one of the earliest forms of photography. By laying 2D objects on top of chemically treated material, you’ll create a deep blue print with bright, ghost-white silhouettes.
Bring your own fall botanicals, book pages, jewelry, tea, black and white photographic film negatives, or anything else you want to try! All other materials will be supplied by the New Art Center. At the end of day one, you’ll mount your fabric print in an embroidery hoop so that it is ready to hang. On the second day, you’ll work with cyanotype treated watercolor paper.
