“Paint” with us in this online class using collage and assemblage. Thursdays at 6PM from 1/14-1/28

This class is for those interested in using more than paint for color. Students will work on collage and assemblage techniques to explore a range of material textures, opacities and transparencies. There will be an art history component in class that will discuss the use of these materials in contemporary art.
