Ever wondered what to do with left over birthday cards, old textbooks, event tickets, outdated wrapping paper? Before you throw them into the recycle, take a second look. What we overlook, can be precious fragments to creating a work of art.  We will use upcycled paper materials such as discarded textbooks, vintage ephemera and handmade papers to create a piece that is tactile and artistically beautiful. You’ll develop an eye for paper materials that create interesting backgrounds, shapes, textures and patterns. You will also learn how to apply composition, themes and color schemes to create harmony. Learn the importance of layering materials from larger scale to smaller to create background and foreground. You will also learn techniques on how to create your own interesting paper materials for your art piece such as paint & tear and distressing & aging. Students will be working on multiple pieces. All materials will be provided by the instructor, but students are free to also bring their own additional ephemera (instructor will email a list of ideas/suggestions).
