Paper Mosaic Collage Dog Portraits
What you'll learn
- Students will learn how to create a paper mosaic collage dog portrait
Hi Everyone! People love their pets, myself included. In this class, I'll take you step by step through the process of making a paper mosaic of your dog. So, what exactly is a "paper mosaic"? Well, we are using small bits of paper to make a larger image. That's a mosaic - made with paper - so... "paper mosaic"!
I'll make two dog portraits during this course. You'll see the creation of a light colored, long haired dog as well as a dark colored, short haired dog. I encourage you to watch all of the videos, even if they don't quite apply to your pet because they are all filled with great tips that may not appear in any other video.
We'll make the mosaic out of a variety of papers. You might like to take the "Preparing Papers for your Art" class so you will have lots of fun papers to pick from, but it is not a prerequisite. You can simply use magazine papers if you don't want to paint your own.
When I filmed this, I had a dog (Annie). Sadly, she passed away shortly after this. I'm so glad I made a portrait of her! I have it in a place I can see it often. I also have two cats (Henry and Ollie). You'll probably be able to spot them all during the course!
Let's get started!
Who this course is for:
- People who like to make art and learn new techniques! It doesn't hurt if you also love dogs! :)
