2016 dates to be announced…
Instructor: Elsah Cort
Held in Three Rivers, California.
Class size is limited to 4-6 persons.
The sacred circular form of the mandala will be the foundation for this water based collage workshop. Several mixed media techniques will be shared, including collage on canvas using masa paper, mulberry paper, and other handmade paper as our background support.
We begin with a mandala-making meditative art practice on the first day, creating a simple piece that allows for our art-making to deepen and open to the unknown. As the workshop progresses, we will make several mandalas using various water-based collage techniques. The nature of the circle gives us a beautiful limitation, while collage invites infinite possibilities.

All workshops can be scheduled for specific dates on all days of the week, if you have a minimum of four persons registered. Consider scheduling a private workshop as a way to gather with friends for creative fun or to celebrate personal special events.
Workshops are open to everyone…not “just” artists.
Fun is the prime directive.
