Abstract Art with Wendy

Wendy Fitzgerald is offering an rare and unusual  study group – class with her expertise in collage and mindful drawing.

If you wish to create abstract art but having problem to get started?  This is the class for you.  Wendy will teach you multiple ways to create abstract art by incorporating collage pieces as inspiration. The metaphor of collage

triggers magical responses in your brain and unexpected creativity will surprise you as a result.  

Etch your Art on a Copper Sheet

Carol Norden has eight 12 by 24 copper sheets which have been etched by nature and natural process.  The etchings are random and can be turned into interesting new works of art by the addition of acrylic paint or collage items.  Gemstones and beads can be added to make an assemblage. Your imagination has no limit.  

Carol won a ribbon in the Juried Show for her collage creation on copper,  “Mediating Goddess.”  One of her students painted a coiling dragon flying out of the natural etching.

The workshop is Tuesday, May 28, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm in the Art Room at Cribari Center.

Your finished work  will be absolutely unique to you and no one else, since the natural etching on the sheet is different each time.  Your art work can be framed with a standard sized 24 by 12 frame from Michael's or other art source.

Carol will help you begin you art work with a 2 hour introduction and guided practice.  After a lunch break, you can spend the afternoon completing your work or take it home to finish.

Fee is $125 with all materials included. Register at   Checks are due May 21.
