Inquiry into Collage with Margaret Rizzio
April 9, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm$145
In this four-week workshop, join artist Margaret Rizzio, with her wealth of vintage ephemera and paper supplies, and learn various collage techniques. Breathe new life into once-forgotten materials in these collage filled afternoons. Through different prompts, we will explore what it means to use pattern vs. image, cutting vs. tearing, bold vs. muted colors, and textured vs. flat surfaces. Please feel free to bring collage materials you would like to incorporate, but know there will be plenty of materials to share. There will also be time to discuss and share our work with the group.
Artist Margaret Rizzio graduated from Bennington College in Vermont with a BA in visual arts followed by an MFA from Purchase College in New York. She creates diverse pieces through colorful, multi-layered collages filled with coincidences and synchronistic repeating elements. She is represented by Dowling Walsh Gallery in Rockland and Turtle Gallery in Deer Isle. She currently practices and lives in Camden, Maine. To see examples of her work, go to www.margaretrizzio.com
