This is an experimental workshop on how collage elements can be utilized as an important structural element in painting and a way in which to build a rich, multi-layered painting. Students will learn how to apply collage elements as an under-painting before beginning a painting in addition to learning how to incorporate layers of collage with oil paint. The combination of these techniques will result in a rich, painterly and multi-faceted surface. Think of an archeological dig site with treasures peaking out between the layers of earth! Students will learn a brief history of collage in painting and be introduced to contemporary painters that incorporate collage in their work. Students will learn how to collage and use photo transfer techniques as an under-painting. They will experiment with creating collage elements on tissue paper using a variety of mark making materials such as Sumi ink, walnut oil, oil pastels, graphite pencils, etc. Students will then learn how to incorporate their collage with oil paints using cold wax medium. Some oil painting experience is required.
