DATE/TIME: Sat-Sun / April 2-3 / 10:30-4:30
Join the fun for a 2-day workshop in collage with our amazing collage artist, Kate Steiger. She will teach you her techniques in what she calls “buried collage” – layer upon layer of acrylic paint over specially chosen items. This results in a fascinating mélange of color and design, with treasured tidbits poking out here and there – buried collage.
For this creation, you will bring your treasured items – ticket stubs or a program from a meaningful event… a special ribbon... a poem… a family photo (copies please!)… or a postcard from an amazing vacation – you get the idea – and layer them into designs in acrylic paint. Kate suggests a travel theme for this workshop, if you’d like: you can bring mementos that are significant from one or more trips you’ve taken to collage together into a beautiful piece of art!
This workshop is perfect for all levels, beginners to advanced. No experience in painting or drawing is necessary. Students from last year’s workshop absolutely loved this class. One brand new student said she was thrilled to be able to create something so beautiful, even though she’d never taken one art class before! Advanced students will enjoy learning new techniques from this fabulous artist.

Paint: (Heavy Body Acrylic Paint) Suggested Colors:
The theme of this workshop is travel (although other themes, such as family events and memories are also perfect as inspiration). Whenever possible, I encourage the use of original materials, but keep in mind that these objects will be glued and embellished with paint, and parts may be transformed or obscured in the design, so you may prefer to make copies of any precious materials. Although these copies may not be archival, they are perfect to be painted over with acrylic and acrylic mediums.
Have fun assembling the “Treasures” you will use in your Buried Collage:
