Collage is one of the mainstays of mixed-media art, but creating a cohesive, interesting piece can be daunting. Where to start? What supplies to use? How to find inspiration? In this two-hour workshop you will experience basic collage techniques and materials as Beverly shares with you her approaches to creating a narrative with collage.
