Creating Collage Papers from Coffee Filters and Alcohol Inks @ Del Ray Artisans
Dec 4 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

This workshop is full! We are not taking any more registrations.

This workshop, taught by collage artist Mary Kralj, will demonstrate and explore how to create papers with saturated color and a contrasting metallic webbing that will be suitable for future art projects such as collage, bookmaking and multi-media.  All necessary supplies provided by the instructor.  Class size: 3-20 (5-12 ideally).  Each participant will take home:

  • A set of 3 or more alcohol inks created in class along with instructions for how to create more at home.
  • A set of papers of various sizes created from custom dyed and painted coffee filters, with instructions for how to create more at home.
  • A sample of coffee filters from fellow classmates to demonstrate the variability that can be achieved with this technique.

“Figure 04” by Linda Lowery

Looking for a chance to hone your figure drawing skills? Del Ray Artisans offers a range of open life drawing sessions for just this purpose. Both nude and clothed models are featured. (Models will be nude unless otherwise noted.) These sessions operate on a drop-in basis so there is no need to register in advance. Bring your supplies and join us at the gallery to draw or paint from our live models. We don’t supply easels but you are welcome to bring your own if you want to use one. Please no acrylics or oils; pastels, watercolor and ink are permissible. All skill levels are welcome.

The fee for each three-hour session is $10 for DRA members and $12 for non-members. Two-hour sessions are $8 for members and $10 for non-members.

Short/Long Pose Sessions

The three-hour short/long pose sessions start with some short 1 to 5-minute warm-up poses and progressively move into longer poses lasting 10 to 45 minutes. These sessions provide a great opportunity to refine your drawing and observation skills.
