Bring depth and inspiration to your painting surfaces with collaged paper. Sherre Wilson Liljegen shares her innovative process designed to reach beyond the predictable physical 2D plane in pursuit of unexpected visual connections which opens the door to your own imaginative world. Sherre will demonstrate how students can combine fragments of textured colored paper to craft multifaceted images that produce surprising results as ink and paint is applied. You will be encouraged to embrace the shifts between forms and edges, as each piece of the paper accepts pigments according to their layered texture. On this interactive surface, your intuitive responses will incubate your imagery from initial concept to the final stages of a rich, engaging work of art that reveals an artistic journey previously unimaginable. ALL LEVELS WELCOME.

The AAN Studio is equipped with glass top sliding carts that make perfect glass palettes. However, you will want to bring a large plastic bin or tray with palette paper and a lid. Because the studio is used for evening classes and storage room is at a minimum, students are asked to transport their supplies to and from the studio each day. We also supply vegetable oil, dawn soap, and Gamsol for clean up.
