This is an exciting month! I am pleased to have my friend and fellow artist, SaraMarie lead us in making collage art!
Collage Play Time is open to all experience levels!
In this Art Hour, SaraMarie will lead us in simple collage experiments playing toward a finished piece. We will learn about approachable ways to find satisfying compositions, colors, and shapes. You will need a piece of paper or cardboard, a glue stick or tape, and scissors. A digital pdf of collage material will be provided which you can print and cut out.
We invite you to gather paper scraps, photos, or other flat things you might like to include in your art piece.
To learn more about why collage is a wonderful thing, read SaraMarie's short blog, Collage: A Joyful and Relevant Art Medium (saramariebottaro.com/blog/collage-a-joyful-and-relevant-art-medium)

How it works: We’ll begin with a short meditation to get grounded and centered. I’ll then lead a creative project using materials you have around the house or are easy to find. Finally, we’ll conclude with an opportunity to share and reflect on the experience.
Making art is a form of self-care. Art Hour allows you to make something of your own while sharing virtual space with others. Art Hour is designed for those who say “I’m not creative”. This is a safe space to explore your creativity free from judgment and negative self-talk.
