Join internationally acclaimed collage artist Ann Baldwin in an energetic art instruction DVD filmed in a live workshop at the Asilomar Art & Soul Conference, on the topic of Telling Stories with Collage and Paint.
In this painting DVD, Ann shows you how to use texture painting techniques to tell a story. Ann first walks through important topics of material selection and image preparation. She divulges where she finds her collage artwork and gives useful artist tips on how to organize all of those collage elements. Next Ann shares her approach to color in art, explains her process for directing the viewer's eye to the important parts of her design, and discusses the importance of being willing to sacrifice parts for the good of the whole.
Ann's DVD goes beyond the beginner painting and shows how to use those texture and layering techniques to create a deep and meaningful story.
As a bonus, the DVD includes Ann's helpful critiques of her students' work, a gallery of her collages and printable handouts from the workshop. It's almost like being there!
Six class handouts are included on the DVD for printing:
a) A Personal Approach to Collage
b) Adding Texture to Mixed Media Collages
c) Glazing, Adhesives and Mediums
d) Introductory Exercise
e) Overcoming Fear (also available online)
f) Questions about a Finished Painting
