Nightmares & Dreamscapes

$ 95  


In this collage course we will experiment with creepy and ethereal imagery. Anyone with an appetite for the dark and mysterious will enjoy creating pieces that celebrate the eerie side of surrealism. Participants will learn techniques for making textures, distressing, as well as how to combine images to evoke an emotional response in the viewer. We will play with combining different mediums for different effects. Just how macabre the piece becomes is up to each artist!
