Explore the World of Mixed Media Collage

   Junior   Cadette   Senior   Ambassador

Using acrylic paints and collage materials, we will explore the abstract visual world of accident and doodle. Let go of expectations to discover what is unique about a visual adventure in integrating a variety of materials, discarded and recycled with paint to explore the creative process. In this workshop, we’ll take a broad view of abstraction, expression and composition.

The term “improvisation” is described for this approach because it is very much like playing a solo in jazz: In a typical jazz solo, the musician makes up a melody as he or she goes along, over a set of chord changes that define the song. We’ll begin with an improv gluing of materials. Using this as a foundation, we’ll compose-as-you-go in paint and collage to create an expression of this experience, time and place.

Location: Troop meeting location, if preferred, or at the ENO Metalworks Studio.

Cost: $15 per person (girls and participating adults)
