Preparing Papers for Your Art
What you'll learn
- Students will learn many different techniques to prepare papers to later use in collage artwork.
- The only requirement is a love of art and play! :)
Hi! This class is all about preparing papers for your art. I’ll show you what kind of papers to look for, we’ll draw our own patterns, and we’ll learn how to make stamps and stencils. We’ll get some really great effects by using a variety of texturing tools with paint, marbling, adding solvents to magazines and dripping isopropyl alcohol on the paint. We’ll play with a gel printing plate, too!
By the end of the class, you’ll have a stack of great papers to use in your art.
This class is all about playing and experimenting as we prepare the papers. We have freedom from composition and design here. It’s all about having some fun and making some interesting visual textures!
Thank you for joining me! LET’S DO THIS THING!!
Who this course is for:
- People who are interested in playing with papers, trying new techniques to get fun results, people interested in creating collages
