Collage Class—Song Birds says
Join Elizabeth St. Hilaire for a mini collage class. For this class we will be focusing on a 6x6 collage of a simple song bird. Please bring a reference photo (print out) of a small and colorful bird that you would like to create. Elizabeth will teach you how to transfer your reference photo, how to paint in your basic under-painting, and how to apply collage. Elizabeth will teach the basics of her collage process through demonstration and hands-on guidance.
