Create shapes using paper to create a collage. Also you will be able to embellish using other materials. You are also welcome to cut photos from magazines and create a collage.

Paper Marbling – Create colorful patterns and organic shapes through paper marbling techniques. You can relate the organic shapes into a picture similar to the process of Cándida Alvarez. The paper marbling will be done on 4×6 card stock and used in a cover for a Japanese Bookbinding journal. The journals can be used to sketch ideas for works on exhibit at Hyde Park Art Center.
