presenterGuest Artist: Barbara Tabachnick

Barbara Tabachnick, who is a long time CAA member and outstanding collage artist, will be our speaker at our January meeting.

Barbara’s art is all about playing with nature. Her identity straddles science and art – computers provide support for both. Trees, landscapes, cityscapes, and architecture; all are wonderful in their original forms, but what fun it is to let the computer play with them. She also enjoys the process of making art – like pushing around paint to see where it wants to go. She considers herself an experimental artist: “What will happen if…..?” Read more...

Collage Artists of America Workshop

Mixed-Media Folding Books

One-day Workshop with Erella Teitler
Wednesday, January 28, 2015

Download Workshop Flyer PDF

In this one day "hands-on" workshop we will create an 8-page, Mixed-Media Folding Book. Each participant will choose a theme ahead of the workshop to create their personalized book and learn many other ideas for future books. These books are keepsakes, and for sharing memories. Erella will show us how to present the book as a gift. We will use inexpensive, readily-available materials to achieve a layered and textured one-of-a-kind book. There will be no sewing or binding (unless a participant chooses to embellish the book with sewing). Erella will demonstrate how to transform scrap booking papers, doilies and embellishments into distinctive additions to the book. She will also introduce products that will enhance those embellishments and make them unique. More info and registration on Workshops page.

CAA Scholarship Award

To maintain ties to the community and to promote the study of collage, Collage Artists supports an annual scholarship for a deserving art student.

2014 Scholarship Winner: Ashley Mistriel

Ashley Mistriel is a graduate student at California State University, Northridge. She uses collage, transfers and illustration to create simple yet profound images that reflect the themes that revolve around the importance of family as a unit. In 2008, Ashley was accepted into the CSU Summer Arts Residency in Florence, Italy. In 2009, she received a BA in Illustration from CSUN. Ashley's work has been featured in American Illustration issues 31 and 32, and at several galleries in the Los Angeles area.

We are pleased to grant Ashley Mistriel the 2014 Collage Artists of America Scholarship Award, and look forward to following her career.
