Join Kathy Dallara and create colorful, original collage paintings. You will use images you are passionate as your center piece. You will learn how to choose your subject as well as various set-up methods.
Students are encouraged to use reference photos, sketches, and their imagination. Kathy will demonstrate how to use your cell phone as an editing tool. She will give photo lighting tips and show how black and white values can help you best create your collage paintings. You will make an underpainting and explore various types of papers for collaging. She will also cover color theory, composition, drawing, and acrylic painting for collage.
All levels of painting with drawing skills are welcome.
