September 20–22, 2013 (Friday–Sunday, 9:30 am–4:30 pm)
at the Mendocino Art Center

As many of you know, Paste Paper is one of my favorite things to create & teach, as it is a process one can get lost in, that connects the artist to a deeper place. Why? How? Well you’ll just have to sign up to find out! Not only will this open you up to the world of color, texture and painting, you will also leave with a large collection of unusual & beautiful papers, and an accordion book as well.

I hope to see you.

Mixed-media collage, a way to re-contextualize everyday objects to create new works of art, is one of the most expressive ways to explore and expand your creative practice. Adding acrylic paints, 3-dimensional objects and working in layers provides the freedom to work in the moment and be open to discovery. In this workshop, you will be guided through techniques and processes to enhance spontaneity and help you to transform your way of working…or playing! All levels welcome.
