Carlie Dunn will lead the group by demonstrating unique ways to take your collage a step or two further in the process of a more artistic professional presentation.
Making marks on a collage adds interest, depth, and beauty. Marks can be made on background support papers and added as elements as you create a collage. Marks are added in many ways, using objects like feathers, corrugated cardboard, stencils, stamps, bubble wrap, combs and rubbing. The possibilities are endless!
The goal of this workshop is to experiment with a variety of mark making techniques (not to create a finished collage). You’ll have the opportunity to create background papers or to finish a collage you’ve already started. A variety of work areas will be provided to try different techniques. Be prepared to get messy and have fun!
Materials to bring:
Liquid mark-making fluid (e.g., acrylic paint, ink, liquid watercolor)
Containers to put fluid in (e.g., pie tin, yogurt tub)
Brushes, sponges to apply fluid to the marking making tool
Paper for collage (e.g., tissue, cardstock, vintage paper, text, magazine images, etc.)
Background papers that you’ve made or collages you want to finish
Mark making tools (think outside the box: sticks, straws, stencils, sponges, textured objects for rubbing)
Materials to clean your mark making tools (towels, rags)
Water container (jar, yogurt tubs)
Also: think about how you’ll get wet paper home, as some papers won’t be completely dry
