Rip, Tear, Paste, Paint - Collage

Dates
Display dates: 
Wednesdays, October 17 through November 28, 2012 (excluding November 21)

Creating a collage is a wonderful way to play—to allow yourself to be moved by color, texture, shape and design. Participants will learn techniques for creating papers as well as how to include discarded lace, ribbons, concert tickets, canceled checks, onion bags, wrapping paper, boxtops, labels and any other objects from day-to-day life in their creations. As each masterpiece is created, allow yourself to be surprised as images emerge through the layering of materials.

About the instructor

Pegge DeLaney Laine is a retired school counselor with an Expressive Arts Certificate from Appalachian State University. She is also certified as a Registered Expressive Art Consultant Educator through the International Expressive Arts Association . Her work has been exhibited at ART EXPO 2009 at Appalachian and at the Jones House in 2010. She believes art happens whenever we allow ourselves to be open to possibility, to be present in the moment, to let go of thoughts, to be still, and to receive whatever comes our way. That means embracing the problems, the demons of the day as well as the joys that come with living with intention.
