Telling Stories with Collage Class beginning March 2

Telling Stories with Collage
Wednesdays, March 2 – April 6, 2016
7:15 – 8:45pm

     We all have stories to tell. Stories about people, events, and places that are important to us. They document our life and form our and our family’s histories. Learn to tell your stories creatively. Beginning with simple subject matter on a 2D surface, then we will move to more complex story telling ranging from the straight forward to conceptual themes. A variety of techniques, materials, textures and formats will be covered.
     In the first session, I will bring a variety of materials for participants to explore and experiment with. Sources for materials will be discussed.
Fees; $90.00 for six week session, payable in advance of first session
