Collage a Portrait: Painting with Paper

If you’ve made abstract collages, you are ready to take mixed media to a new level. Learn to use torn and cut maps and magazine pages to create striking, realistic portraits. Discover how to use recycled paper as if it is 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.

Color image of a face. 8 x 10 is perfect.
Papers that appeal to you, including old maps, music, etc.
Old magazines and maps to tear up
