"MOONCHILD Collage" with Dee Gray - Friday, September 24th
A Celestial Journey into the Soul
Instructor: Dee Gray
When: Friday, September 24th
Class Fee: $110
(Please bring your own lunch)
Collage is the art of reinvention, it allows your mind to relax and play. This magical and tactile process invites you to collect, experiment, combine and transform. Take a mystical journey to the moon and beyond as Dee Gray offers guidance to help you cut and paste your way to creating your own unique artwork.
Within this workshop you will explore the therapeutic process of collecting, playing with composition and collaging. You will personalize your creation with a meaningful word or stencil of the constellation to match your birth date zodiac. You will select and adorn your collage with lovingly altered imagery, stencils and meaningful words to create a surreal piece, inspired by astronomy and space.
Stretch your artistic imagination...the only limit is your imagination. No matter what imagery or words you choose, your collage will be a completely one-of-a-kind creation. Register before September 19th and Dee will create a custom word banner just for you!* There will be additional word banners for those who sign up after that deadline.
We will provide a 16x20'' gesso board, hanging hardware, stencils, most paints and imagery. Please review the student supply list for the necessities we would like for you to bring to class.
*NOTE: Register before September 19th and Dee will create a CUSTOM WORD BANNER (See sample photo below) for your collage. Please add your desired word(s) –up to 13 characters including spaces into the MEMO box when registering online or call us at (301) 497-9449 to process your payment and submit your banner copy.
