We worked on 18" x 14" gallery canvases, beginning by laying down a layer of collage elements to create a background.
Next? A layer of paint, blending and scrubbing with brushes... dark and light areas for contrast.
I am constantly amazed and excited to see how every person expresses themselves in such different ways. Everyone created a unique piece while using the same techniques.
It was a day full of play, creative energy and exploration. Well done, everyone!
