“Katie is willing to work one-on-one with you to help you develop your skills – and also to get you thinking as a collage artist.
This was my first collage class and I have been able to progress with the art because of Katie’s help – and because of the resources provided and the examples shown.”

Takoma Park Encaustic Workshop February 2012
News from Katie Dell Kaufman
I took a drive last week out to Snow Hill Manor, in Laurel, MD, where my assemblage and collage work has been on display for the past few months.
Snow Hill is a historic property owned by Prince Georges County. It is a remarkable little oasis of peace and quiet, right off a buzzing commercial area in Laurel.
Traveling down the long tree-lined entryway was a little like going back in time. It was delightful to view the gracious vistas and imagine the lives of the landed gentry of our area over the past centuries.
The work looked great in the historic venue and I enjoyed the lesson in local history and the warm February day.
I felt a bit like a truant schoolgirl — finding adventure in my own back yard!
In hopes that you are finding your adventure…
Have a wonderful March!

The upcoming session of my weekly Collage class begins Tuesday March 6th 2012.

Part color theory class, part exposure to fresh ideas about composition, it is a workshop, a critique group, and, most of all, a place to generate, wrestle with, and nurture visual ideas. Come and experience the infinite possibilities of paper, paint, and found materials! This class is held in the Takoma Park Community Center.
Tuesdays/March 6 – April 17, 2012. 11AM to 2 PM (April 3rd – No class)
(The next session after that is scheduled from May 1st to June 5th and will be listed in the Recreation Department’s Spring/Summer Catalog.)

Subjects covered include visual metaphor and the collage process, found and altered papers, preparation of substrates, adhesives, and an introduction to color palette choices and design tools for artists.

In addition, there will be instruction on structural approaches to composition.
