Collage and Assemblage Classes

All classes are structured as Open Studio Time; after a short instruction on collage, assemblage, or mask art, you can create any project that inspires you!

Individual or small group classes are available by appointment.


My collage workshops are on-going. You can come to one class, or come to them all!

The classes are structured so that anyone, from beginners through advanced, can have a great time. I'll demonstrate basic collage techniques, then let you experiment with the materials.

For more advanced students, I'll share some additional techniques.

Hire me to teach a workshop for your group! Mom's Night Out, Women's groups, teens, home-school groups, birthday celebrations...any one can do collage with just minimal instruction.

I have all the materials you will need, including a wide array of decorative art papers, glue, brushes, and surface options (canvas, wood, etc.)

Photos of student work is below.
