Paint/Cut/Paste Instructor: Cat Bennett Adult Saturday, March 16, 10am-3:30pm Fee: $90 Working with richly colored shapes is an easy and fun way to create vibrant imagery! In this workshop we’ll learn how to mix colors and create papers to cut and paste into collaged images both abstract and representational. We'll take our inspiration from Matisse’s great joyful cut-outs. In the morning we'll paint a selection of colored papers and make an abstract piece. After lunch we’ll make one or two representational pieces working from imagination or photographs. The mini art retreat is designed for all skill levels and is very relaxing. All are welcome!
