Collage Nature

$ 95  


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
