Collage w/ Acrylics, Paper, Paint Pens (& optional resin)

Join us at ArtPlay for a fun Friday evening of creativity, collage & community! Local artist Michelle Hamilton will share tips, techniques & her own inspirations for layering with beautiful fine art papers & acrylics paints! You will discover creative ways to work with beautiful papers and paints, while creating a piece unique to you. There will be an option to have your piece resined at the end of class, if you would like to come back and pick it up after it dries overnight. That will be an additional $30. Click on the link on this class page, if you already know you want that add-on option. No experience needed! Michelle will share strategies layering of acrylics and cut/ torn bits of paper together to create beautiful color-scapes and designs on cardboard substrates. Lots of whimsical characters that Michelle has created will surround you in the gallery to fuel your ideas and explorations! Bring your imagination & sense of humor to this one! All Materials included. Come Play! Recommended for this class, but not required: Bring a visual muse or two, if you like. Hint: search words like “whimsical art and artists” or “playful folk art” on Pinterest to pull up images that might spark some ideas for your creations. Bring a few of those images to the class, on your phone or in print.
