Collage Workshop at the Art School at Old Church

I had a great time today at the collage workshop taught by Harriet Balaran Fincke at the Art School at Old Church in Demarest, N.J. Our first assignment:  create a small (3-and-1/2 by 5 inches) collage by way of introducing ourselves, our lives, our interests to each other. Of course I had a paper doll outfit in my stash of papers!

I rethought the newsprint in the upper right corner, based on Harriet's critique. Instead of a readable story, it's now simply torn newsprint. I like it like that!

Queen Victoria as a Young Woman

By Sylvia Kleindinst, 1994

Found in a shop in Phoenix, AZ. Someone went a little crazy with the decorative scissors! But luckily it doesn't harm the artwork.

"The Adversary is Hate," collage, 1969

A collage I made for a class assignment at St. Michael's High School in New York City, 1969. It's primitive, but heartfelt. I've always enjoyed cutting paper and arranging it to express a feeling or viewpoint.
