Representational Collage

This Saturday, May 10th, join us for one of our favorite classes, Representational Collage, at our Alberta location. This month, we're focusing on butterflies. Class is from 2-5pm, $40 for all supplies included. Students need to bring an 8x10 image of a butterfly to work from. Instructor, Susan Schenk has perfected the art of painting with paper. We're proud to boast about her being featured in the magazine Cloth, Paper, Scissors on more than one occasion!

Here she was featured in the Jan/Feb 2014 issue all about her technique.

“Representational collage invites you to see beyond the apparent. From a distance, these collages appear to be paintings, but up close you see a complicated jumble of separate parts. Appealing when viewed from afar, these collages are surprising when inspected more intimately. Using discarded materials as “paint” fosters the idea of finding beauty in the overlooked. Discover line, color, and form hidden in what others toss away.”  --Susan Schenk
