Paper collage workshop

Samuel Price (Author)
"Paper Collage Workshop enables mixed media artists, DIYers, crafters, and aspiring artists to explore their artistic side without having to invest in a range of expensive art tools and supplies. The only things required to play are scissors, glue, and imagination! With Paper Collage Workshop, you can experience the joy of creativity as you use color swatches to transform photos into original, lifelike mixed-media collages. In addition to taking you through both foundational collage activities and intermediate-level projects, this book introduces you to a unique analog-grid system, a color-based collage technique developed by the artist Sam Price over the past 20 years. Whatever your age or skill level, you will be able to add focus and precision to your creations and turn life into art. Organized by both technique and subject, the book is designed to progressively build skills as you complete projects. Beginning with color-based lessons, you will learn how to use form and line, and then move on to create landscapes, abstracts, and pets. You will delight in completing beautiful projects you can frame and display in your own home. Color collage is a mindfulness practice. Like a coloring book, Paper Collage Workshop is a personal meditative experience that quiets and focuses the mind-a great way to experience some true peace as you create. Whether practiced and exercised in tiny doses or taken all at once, the process of making art is truly transformative and relaxing with Paper Collage Workshop"--Publisher's description
