CAA presents workshops, studio visits, and seminars at which members study and create with a visiting artist. These sessions are extremely popular and are open to both members and prospective members.
In addition, our talented CAA members also hold collage and mixed media workshops, and these are detailed in our newsletter, along with other Regional and National Collage workshops. (The current newsletter is posted on our Home page.)

Mixed-Media Folding Books
One-day Workshop with Erella Teitler
Wednesday, January 28, 2015
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.
