3D Mixed Collage
Arts & DIY
A new class for those who love mixed media or those interested in creating a framework for their personal collections.
Using found materials and personal objects, create a 3D work of art to display in your home. Join Jessica and Nicole to learn basics in creating backgrounds with paint, how to work with paper, clay, and found materials to create an artistic shadow box. Participants will discuss concepts such as assemblage, abstraction, narrative, and tradition.
Use your trinkets collected on a trip, family heirlooms, or flea market finds to create a work or art!
