Two-Day Painted Paper Collage Workshop
With Rotem Amizur
October 13 – 14, 2018
In this workshop, we will explore how to create a feeling of light and composition through paper. Even if you have never collaged, after “seeing” with collage, you come back to regular studio practice in a new and fresh way. Collage stimulates us to realize shape and color as one, to reference Matisse who said he was drawing as he cut through his colored paper.
