In this 4 hour class we will be creating two artworks using collage and watersoluble media.  I will walk you through my step by step process of creating each piece.  I will provide drawing instruction sheets to help you with sketching your girls faces.  This is a beginner class however some basic drawing experience will be useful.  These are simple techniques using water soluble markers, pencils and paints that are quick and easy to use.

I will provide all the collage papers for both pieces.  Below are the other supplies you will need to bring to this workshop.
