We’ll be covering a lot of fun abstracts techniques in this class. We’re also going to talk about things that hold you back in your Art Practice and how to get past them. I’ll be using a slide show with discussion, doing several process demonstrations, and walking the room to answer any questions. All skill levels welcome- here are a few things we’ll cover during this workshop:
• Substrate prep
• Jumping in
• Choosing a color scheme, limited palette options
• Making custom collage papers
• Using Grounds and Pastes for Texture
• Finding your “THING”
• Bringing your “A-Game”
• How to handle “The Voices”
• Making your art stand out

Materials Fee $25 paid to instructor at beginning of class includes:

• A BadAss collage pack
• GOLDEN Grounds or Pastes
• Use of miscellaneous GOLDEN products & palette knives, tools
