Collage Artists of America Invites you to attend an exclusive workshop:
Unique Surfaces for Watermedia
3-day workshop with artist, Gerald Brommer
A Three-Day Workshop; Learn to build low-relief, sculpture like surfaces with paper and fabric
Date: Tuesday – Thursday, January 28-30, 2014
Time: 9:30am – 4:00pm all days (includes one hour lunch break)
This three-day workshop emphasizes the development and use of incredibly rich, textured surfaces. “Build” becomes a key word, because the uniqueness of the surfaces lies in the variety of materials gathered for use in the process. Anything is usable – papers, fabrics, metals, cardboard, washi, paper towels, napkins, dried flowers, wood, string, lace and so on. Once this exciting surface is developed it is covered with white gesso and allowed time to dry.
Color can be applied with either transparent watercolor or acrylic paint –or both—or with other stuff. The sky is the limit!!! A supply list will be sent to you upon registration that will indicate possible supports on which to build these low-relief, sculpture-like surfaces. For painting, any type of image is appropriate from realism, to abstraction, to nonobjective materials. The entire process is incredibly exciting and challenging, and is a new and unexplored direction in watermedia work.
