Art by Jay Young GerardThis workshop has been cancelled.

Different tools produce different art. This course will teach you to use various papers as your delivery mechanism for color, shape and texture. You will create art by tearing, cutting, layering and gluing ephemera. You will also learn to turn “bleeding” tissue paper into “paint sticks”. The resulting art will be a unique expression of your interests and aesthetics. See website for examples. You will be introduced to techniques the first night and begin planning the piece. For the 2nd session, bring in personal materials you want to consider including, and execute (or at least begin executing) your piece.

Class size:  4-12 participants. Price is $95 for DRA members and $105 for non-members, plus a $30 supply fee.

This is a 2-part class. Please attend both dates. Part 1 on July 11 from 6-8pm; Part 2 on July 12 from 6-8pm.
