This Art Workshop will be held through zoom!
“Exploring Emotions by Collaging with Paint”
Participants will paint something abstract on a large sheet of regular paper, using the colors they are drawn to. That sheet will need to be dried with a blow dryer or it can dry on its own. Then they will tear it up into various sizes and shapes and create a whole new art piece by painting a background on a canvas, then the torn pieces will be used as collage and glued on top of the canvas.
