Learn the joys of mixed media collage. In this workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of collage, drawing and painting. We will address working with papers, fabrics, found objects, past artwork, pencil and charcoal drawing, and acrylic painting. Students have the option to play with gelli plates, stamps and monoprinting on papers in addition the collage. The materials used will be the choice of each student, but students are encouraged to incorporate some of their own prior artwork into new pieces. The objective of the workshop is to explore new mixed media techniques and excavate each student’s authentic voice in their art.
You will learn 2 drawing methods using your own photos. You will learn how to graph a photo for any size free-hand drawing, and also a tracing method that works well for small pieces and individuals who are intimidated or new to drawing. We learn the fundamentals of collage on the first day and then spend the second day drawing and painting over those collages. Drawing demonstrations will be done on the first day so that you know what to expect and what kind of photo reference to bring. On the second day we will work individually to get each student’s projects to a place that they love.
Everyone is encouraged to incorporate mixed media collage into what they already do! Your instructor will work with each of you on whatever style project you would like to work on whether it is faces, figures, landscapes, still lives or abstracts. There are no set rules in Peloquin’s workshops. She will try to create a fun time that introduces new techniques and a comfortable learning environment to enhance where you already are. All levels are welcomed!
