“AirHeart” Abstract Cruciform Collage
We will create an abstract collage art piece using the “cruciform,” which means cross-shaped. It is a simple way to create a dynamic design. This frees us up to play with color and texture. We will use deconstructed book pages, sheet music and other paper sources. You will learn how use special mediums to create texture and learn how to blend paint on the canvas. Finished piece is a 12×12 board.
Instructor Bio: Sarah Thompson has been answering the creative call all of her life. She grew up on an organic farm in Southern Wisconsin’s driftless area with no TV. This left more than enough time for her to exercise her vivid imagination. She was able to stretch her creative wings by studying fine art at the Chicago Institute of Art. Her next adventure found her working in sales, which did not satisfy her creative need, and eventually, she found her way to earning a degree in graphic design and marketing. She enjoys being able to create on a daily basis in her career, along with spending time with her husband and two wonderful children. They enjoy learning and playing amid the natural beauty of northern Wisconsin.
