Coming Soon
Come collage directly from a still-life installation of figurative casts, fabrics, and other objects, using an elegant palette of prepared papers with walnut and sumi ink. This workshop will focus on the geometric shapes of light/dark and warm/cool to express the illusion of form and the quality of light. Students will develop a dynamic compositions that combine ink washes and graphic collage techniques. Trowbridge will be leading the Florence, Italy Tour in July 2018, and this workshop is an introduction to some of the concepts and methods that will be used when working from the magnificent compositions and statues of the Italian Renaissance.
