P329 - Collage Nature: Birds & Butterflies

Susan Schenk
6:30 - 9:30
Thursday Eve

[back to quicklinks]
$ 85  

Bring some fluttering nature inside and use maps and magazine pages to create striking, realistic portraits of birds and butterflies. Discover how to use recycled paper as “paint” to create a unique work of art. You will be guided through the technical challenge of making realistic renderings from recycled materials, and produce one or two frame-ready works of art. No drawing skills needed. Sophisticated looking results from a deceptively simple technique that you can use at home to create more.

Supplies Needed for Class:
Color images of birds and/or butterflies. 8 x 10 is perfect. Calendar photos are great image sources. More available in class.
Papers that appeal to you, including old maps, music, etc.
Old magazines and books to tear up.
Your favorite scissors, a cutting mat and Exacto if you have one,

Everything will be provided in class including reference photos of birds and butterflies

Most of the required supplies for your classes can be pre-ordered from Collage. They will be ready and waiting for you to pick up when you arrive at the retreat. For further info and to place your order, contact:
