Announcing the second six-week session of Altered Mondays at Vita Art Center in Ventura!
Mondays, 4/6-5/18, No class May 4
Week 1: Altered Papers
We’ll alter sheet music, maps, book pages and other papers using gesso resist, acrylic glazes, stamping, dry-brushing, distressing and more to create our own collage papers.
Week 2: Photo Transfers
We’ll enhance our photos using markers, crayons and colored pencils and transfer them to paper and fabric, which creates an incredible painterly effect.
Week 3: Metal Magic
With metal sheeting we’ll create stunning panels and embellishments using wet and dry embossing, paint, alcohol inks, molding paste, beads, metallic pastes, rubber stamps, and craft punches.
Week 4: Fabric, Lace and Fibers
These items are not just for sewing any more! We’ll glue, paint, and embellish fabric scraps to make beautiful, textural art fragments.
Weeks 5 and 6: Put it all together!
In the final two sessions, we’ll combine the papers, photos, metal embellishments and fabric art fragments you’ve created into a beautiful wall decoration using collage and machine stitching techniques.
