Perfect for homeschool groups, Fine Art Fridays offer beginning to intermediate art-making sessions. In September, we’re celebrating Charlotte-born artist Romare Bearden’s birthday with a collage-making workshop. Designed for enthusiasts of all ages and levels, local mixed-media artist Shane Manier will guide workshop participants as they create an original work of art.
Collage is a technique using an assemblage of diverse materials and media which can include newspaper, magazines, fabric, paint, photographs and other found materials in different forms and shapes to create a finished composition.
