Paper Art - Cuts and Collage with Antje Martens-Oberwelland
Date & Time: September 18-20th, 9am-4pm
Skill Level: All Levels
Material Fee: $35 payable to the instructor
Many people may not know, but Henri Matisse was known for his paper art and collage. We will examine his work, along with Antje’s, and other contemporary paper collage artists to learn about design, what makes a good pattern, and how to use paper and scissors creatively. Participants will start out with paper cuts and create patterns using a variety of papers which will be glued onto a paper substrate. If desired, finished work can be enhanced using ink or items found in nature. Participants will create a landscape or still life using ripped paper either from magazines or richly textured and tinted handmade paper. Additional to the fee of $35, participants will need to bring a pair of scissors and an extractor knife.
