Collage and Pastel Botanicals

Micah Goguen
9:00 - 4:30
Thursday Oct 21

[back to quicklinks]
$ 170  

Join artist Micah Goguen for this fresh new approach integrating collage with pastel technique. We will be using a series of botanical images to clip, tear and paint our way through a foundation. We will then learn the secrets of GOLDEN pastel ground as an amazing layering process we can then embellish with pastel. This is a fun and exciting way to work with these materials and to display without putting them under glass. No previous experience needed.
We will be working with Myungo soft pastels and Ampersand Gessobord and GOLDEN Soft Gel Gloss and Pastel Ground.
 

Materials Fee $20 paid at beginning of class includes:

24 ct set of Myungo Soft Pastels
6x6 Ampersand Cradled Gessobord
GOLDEN Soft Gel Gloss
GOLDEN Pastel Ground
Collage Papers/Materials

-your favorite acrylic paint (primary colors of red, blue and yellow plus black and white)
I like the ½ oz fluid acrylic set by GOLDEN

-Additional panels (at least qty 2)
I like the 1/8 flat pack of qty 4 but they are not cradled. If you do not want to frame them, you may want to buy the single ¾ cradled panel instead.

I prefer stainless steel over plastic. Something similar to the 2T
