$ 150  

Join Jane Davies for a new adventure in collage, printing, and image-making. Using easy-to-make paper masks and stencils, we will layer “positive” shapes to build complex images on simple backgrounds; then we will create complex backgrounds and use masking, or “negative” shapes, to bring focus and simplicity to them. Discover a whole new way to use your GelliArts gel plate in conjunction with collage and painting, as you create beautifully layered images.
