Upcoming Class: Basic Collage.

Have you been wanting to make a collage?
Perhaps you've been stashing away paper like a crafty squirrel?
Or maybe you are a shy drawer, but still want to make some art?
Maybe you've even tried to make a collage, but it came out a wrinkly mess?
Sounds like January's collage class would be a great fit for you!

We work with gobs of great papers and images.

We talk about composition,

color combinations,

 and we talk a lot about which glues to use, and how to apply them.

Everybody creates a unique, one of a kind, piece of collage art,
that reflects something about themselves.

Below are examples of student work, each its own unique masterpiece.

Come join me in the world of paper bliss!

3934 NE 16th Ave. Portland, OR
Class is $25 and ALL supplies are included.

The Hunt.

I went into the woods on a bit of a hunt.
It's my favorite season in the Oregon forest, mushroom time.
These fruit flowers of the fungal world have my heart.
Sometimes I like to learn their names,
most times I just want to find them, 
and see the funny places they choose to grow.
All the time I like to pretend to be a small wee folk,
an elfin friend who uses these as a bit of shade.
So, when you come across a girl in the woods laying on the ground,
peering up at the underside of mushroom caps,
that's just me in make believe land.
Join me, there is plenty of room.
