By nature, collage is a playful process, and can lead to more original and expressive ideas.

Paper collage is a wonderful way to re-think design through shape and color, to generate new ideas, take risks within a small format, produce quick studies for larger works - and the collages are genuine art works in their own right! 

A perfect class for anyone who wants to create strong compositions and explore new color ideas. This workshop is suitable for artists who work with any medium, abstract to realism.
