Synopsis: What story will your art express?

There's a dialogue waiting to happen on your worktable. The Art of Expressive Collage will teach you to listen to what paper and glue, ink and paint have to tell you. From the fear of messing up to the excitement of letting things flow, you'll come to see the common thread in the bits and pieces you collect. You'll discover new ways to think about arranging these bits in your work as you express yourself with lines, smudges and translucent layers.

   • How to prepare various papers for collage using staining and embellishing techniques
   • An understanding of the elements of design and composition
