Understand collage from the first layer to the final glaze with the collage techniques of mixed media artist Ann Baldwin. In this art instruction dvd, Ann teaches you how to combine the possibilities of text with the versatility of acrylics. First Ann begins with a discussion of abstract design. She shows you how you can practice your own design skills with something as simple as magazine cut outs. Next Ann introduces texture painting techniques and walks you through a series of step by step art lessons. Ann's short texture tutorials simplify and clarify those wonderful Golden mediums.
Once you've learned those artist tips, Ann moves into a complete abstract collage. She shows you how to collage torn computer printouts with textured layers to create a rich abstract design.
