These collages are what I call “Painting with Paper,”and they are incredibly fun to do. These are all fairly complex examples, but one can create very simple collages with this technique also. When I see paper, especially gorgeous colors from magazine photos- I think “COLOR! Tear-up! Piece together!” What a way to recycle.

OK, so maybe they are more white-ish-on-white-ish. It was just a starting point. And these are just a few of the wonderful pieces created in the Anderson Valley Collage class. There are more to come!

I teach both in Boonville in the Art Barn, and in Ukiah at the Mendocino College campus. These amazing books are from students from both. The experience level of my students go from “I haven’t done a collage since kindergarten” to professional artists and everyone in between. The wide range of skill levels makes teaching this class incredibly fascinating and challenging. I love it!
