Note: The meeting dates have been updated since of the publication of the summer 2018 brochure.
Students will have the experience of creating work using the techniques of paper cutting and collage assemblage. This ancient skill has found its way into the contemporary art world. Henry Bermudez has developed his own techniques within his large scale works. This class will help you envision new ideas. Using random composition, join us in making art beyond the frame in a playfully free environment.

Demonstrations, presentations in painting and cutting techniques, and studio work time
What topics will be covered?
