MIXED MEDIA COLLAGE: WINGING IT
Learn layering techniques, the use of color, and have fun with mixed media supplies you probably have at home. We will use old books, favorite images from various sources, family pictures or small artwork that you have created. We will get messy, inspire one another, and learn to accept that there are no mistakes while creating collage work. We’ll start by getting to know each other, setting goals and looking over the supply list and looking at some samples of the instructor’s collage work.
Instructor: Lorri-Marie Jenkins
Wednesdays, Feb 3- March 10, 6:30 - 9 pm
Fee: $60 member | $70 non-member
Six 2.5-hour sessions
Lorri-Marie Jenkins, a self-taught artist, has been a part of the Benicia Community for over 20 years. She has managed and was a chef for the First Street Café. She opened her own catering company, “Some Enchanted Eatings”, and managed an art gallery in the home she shares with her artist-husband Rob Jenkins. After raising four boys, she found a lot of creative time on her hands. Being a woman of great ideas and little money, she chose ‘found object’ artwork. Lorri-Marie started creating found object sculptures in 2004. She now finds great pleasure in mixed-media collage work, fiber work and playing with what other people consider ‘trash’. She loves sharing her ideas, her supplies, and her studio with other playful artists. She finds that she is usually the student, not the teacher! See: Wingingit-Wingingit.blogspot.com
