Learn the art of collage by making original holiday cards to send or frame. Cut, tear and paste layers of paper to create fun seasonal imagery. Botanicals such as Christmas cactus, mistletoe, poinsettia will be featured and other subjects will be introduced as well. Bring your ideas to the class and Lisa will share with you how to simplify the subject matter, create dynamic compositions, and make harmonious color choices.
On day one, participants will watch demos and participate. In the follow up session, Lisa will give individualized feedback on your artwork and offer assistance during guided open studio time.
