Bring your friends, family, or co-workers 

over for a fun activity.

This class is for beginning, intermediate, experienced, and even non-artists ... actually, everybody!  

I will teach you the technique, and you bring the meaning or the story, and together,

we will create a collage with photos, letters, your favorite color, a written poem..

This is a suggestion of the collage materials you can bring:

  • photo*

  • letter*

  • children's drawings*

  • musical papers

  • recipe*

  • wrapping paper

  • a piece of poetry or literature

(*If you want to bring in a copy of these collage materials, I recommend getting a LASER copy because they won't bleed with the glue that we will be using.)


We'll spend some time on color mixing to get the colors you choose. Then, we'll have fun making collage paper using all kinds of tools and techniques.


Above is an example of some of the collage papers that I have that are available to you to use or

use what you have brought or made.


Then, I'll give you a lesson on the elements of design. You'll get a 12"x 12" cradled panel, and I'll provide you with a 12" template where you can choose your collage papers, rearrange them and make a perfect composition. 

(Don't worry, I'll teach you how.) 

There are some examples of mixed-media/collage paintings on my Pinterest Mixed-Media Board that may inspire you: Pinterest Mixed-Media Class


Above are some of the collages that my students made.
