"Jane Davies Acrylic Collage Workshop"
April 30 - May 4, 2018
 

Discover a whole new world of artistic possibility when you combine collage and paint with modern printmaking techniques (without a press). First we will layer colors, patterns, and textures on the GelliArts gel plate to create gorgeously hand-printed collage papers. Then we will integrate monoprint and collage techniques using masks and stencils, to build images directly on a substrate. The boundaries between painting, monotypes, and collage disappear as you gain a fluidity of process and expanding your repertoire of exciting new means of creative expression.
