PAPER ART w/ Martha

A part of the Women’s Creativity Night Series, a unique way to get creative in the company of other wonderful women.

Saturday, March 3rd – Introduction to Collage: Collage is a unique medium with the potential for making all kinds of imagery, from weird and fantastic to muted and decorative. In this workshop we’ll  look at some examples of professional collage and then make our own works of art using simple techniques. We will incorporate decorative papers and magazine/photo clippings.
Saturday, April 14 – Paper Bowl Making: Use a wide variety of beautiful papers and the paper strip over a form technique to create a one-of-a-kind decorative bowl. Each participant will also take home a small container of gloss gesso to seal their artwork at home after it dries.
Saturday, May 5th – Introduction to White Line Woodcuts: White line woodcut printmaking is a uniquely-American style of printmaking developed in Provincetown, Massachusetts in the early 1900’s. It involves carving a line drawing into a wood block and then printing the various colored sections using watercolors one section at a time. The results can be strikingly colorful and expressive. For this workshop we’ll be carving small, balsa wood blocks and printing with watercolors on heavy watercolor paper.
