Golden Workshop, August 25, 2017, 10:30am-3pm 

All Collage, Some Paint (referencing Mark Bradford)

Friday | August 25 | 10:30am-3pm
Instructor: Mary Morrison, Golden Working Artist artist website
Fee: $75 includes all Golden paints & mediums
Washington Street Community Center, 809 So. Washington St., Denver

Maps, photos, art papers, altered pages, tissue paper, fabrics...the possibilities are endless. Contemporary artist Mark Bradford's recent show at the Denver Art Museum took collage to the Max! His large scale abstract paintings used primarily collaged papers in lieu of paint to create his lush textural surfaces. We'll look at Bradford's work for inspiration. In many of his pieces that you can see online, he has used maps and collaged papers as a starting point to build his surfaces. We'll start with 4 smaller canvases using collage papers and go from there! You will have 2 finished pieces to take home. All Golden paints, mediums and gels provided.
