Have fun painting and experimenting using a variety of materials and techniques! By starting with texture, adding paint and collage, you will learn how to incorporate paint with various images and materials to recreate what you started with. At times, you will totally transform your original work. You will work with layering, transfer techniques and collage. Learn to personalize your paintings using found and treasured items. This is an evolving process that will allow each person to discover and actively participate in bringing their own experiences to each work.
