I’m thrilled to be back at Rockport Center for the Arts this winter and super excited to offer my first season of classes at the Port Aransas Art Center. Here are the details – I hope you will join me!
MIXED MEDIA ABSTRACT COLLAGE
In this four-week course, students take a new approach to mixed media collage, starting with collage sketches and exploring composition. Working with a variety of techniques and materials, including hand-painted papers, students will make several collage sketches, and transform them into abstract mixed media collages.
MONDAYS, JANUARY 14 – FEBRUARY 4, 1:30-4:30
WEEKLY DROP-IN COLLAGE EXPLORATION
In this drop-in collage class, students will explore hand-cut paper and mixed media collage using a variety of techniques and materials. Using a sketchbook and magazine images, we will explore scale, color, composition, thematic work, texture, layers, and abstract collage. Bring a small sketchbook (recommended – mixed media sketchbook, approximately 5.5×8.5 or 6×9), scissors, a gluestick, and any magazines you have around.
MIXED MEDIA ART BOOK
In this 2-week workshop, students will learn some very simple book-making techniques and then create a basic art book celebrating their favorite artist or style. (Bring several images for inspiration.)
THURSDAY, FEB. 7 & 14, 10-2
In this four-hour workshop, students will create unique images and patterns using Citrasolv and National Geographic magazines. These pages will become great, one of a kind backgrounds for collage and mixed media works. We will experiment with this technique along with creating painted papers for mixed media collage projects. All materials will be supplied. Be prepared to get messy – aprons and disposable gloves recommended!

COMING SOON! I’m thrilled to be teaching a Wine, Whine & Design session at Port Aransas Art Center on Sunday, February 24, from 5-8pm. I was going to post a link, but the event is SOLD OUT! Hopefully, it will be great fun and the Art Center will invite me back!
Here’s the mixed media mermaid collage that we will be re-creating at WW&D.
