Today was the first day of my 3 day abstract/experimental art workshop. Trying to get everybody loosened up and to think and look at images as non-real things is difficult. Today we did collage papers for use in doing a painting of an abstract image. (See my gallery of Abstract Images as some are in there.)
The gals really worked hard today. Here’s a few shots of the work.
Before / After
Lots of supplies and equipment filled up the garage.
Here's a Lot Of Color
A good variety of types of paint. Helps making abstract/experimental images easier and better. Good notes help too.
Making Collage Paper
Using acrylics to make new collage papers for use later on.
New Collage Papers
Every Space Filled
Need lots of room for all the paint and supplies.
Collage Papers Drying In Sun
It was quite windy out for these light papers and plastic, so we had to weigh down all corners to keep them from being blown away.
