Collage is a versatile art technique, and is powerful when combined with mixed-media. It involves endless choices and possibilities for art expression and exploration.
Raw material refers to the papers that are adhered onto the art surface (substrate), to create a whole. By texturing, glazing, and drawing, you will learn how to create dazzling papers that can be used in mixed media pieces as collaged passages. Through demonstrations and experimentation, you will learn many techniques such as glazing, gesso-printing, scribing, paste paper, paper-peeling, and pigment-scraping. We will learn basic collage techniques too, so you’ll be well on-your-way to understanding the construction of collage building.

Sarah Kahn is an artist based out of Massachusetts.
She is drawn to non-representational art, because it endows the viewer with the freedom to associate, remember, and find sensory response. Amidst passages of color, form and textures, one is invited to draw upon internal imagery and personal experience Kahn works in a sculptural manner, layering paper, fabric, drawings and prints. She is under representation at Soprafina Gallery, SOWA Art District, Harrison Ave., Boston, MA.
Sarah also teaches art to a Women’s Shelter and a weekly group of adults with developmental disabilities. She also works privately with adults in her psychotherapy practice, using art to aid in the process of working through difficult life transitions.
