“Drawing and Painting on Mixed Media Collage” with Christine Peloquin
Learn the joys of mixed media collage. In the workshop, I teach the fundamentals of collage, drawing and painting. I will address working with papers, fabrics, found objects, past art work, pencil and charcoal drawing, and acrylic painting. Students have the option to play with gelli plates, stamps and monoprinting on papers in addition the collage. The materials used will be the choice of each student, but students are encouraged to incorporate some of their own prior art work into new pieces. The objective of the workshop is to explore new mixed media techniques and excavate each student’s authentic voice in their art.
I teach 2 drawing methods using the student’s own photos. I teach how to graph a photo for any size free hand drawing and also a tracing method that works well for small pieces and individuals who are intimidated or new to drawing. We learn the fundamentals of collage on the first day and then spend the second day drawing and painting over those collages. I do drawing demonstrations on the first day so that you know what to expect and what kind of photo reference to bring. I work individually with each person trying to get their projects to a place that they love.
I encourage everyone to incorporate mixed media collage into what they already do! I will work with each of you on whatever style project you would like to work on whether it is faces, figures, landscapes, still lives or abstracts. There are no set rules in my workshops. I try to create a fun time that introduces new techniques and a comfortable learning environment to enhance where you already are. All levels are welcomed!
I am adding a new element to my 2D Mixed Media workshop which involves gelli plates, stamping and monoprinting on papers and fabrics in addition to working with collage! We will have all this fun on the first day of the workshop and then spend the second day learning to draw and paint over those pieces. So here is the updated materials list. If you do not have all of these items, its ok. I will have lots of stamps to play with. You do not need inks, just small tubes of paint colors that you love. I want to give you the opportunity to try all kinds of methods and permission to bring everything but the kitchen sink to class. You are a mixed media artist now and we never travel light! lol. That being said, I will be gathering as much extra give-aways for you that I can. Looking forward to playing with you all!
