The many things that can be created with paper are endless. Combining Watercolor and Collage is a unique form of art. Using the concept of relief sculpture by layering different watercolor techniques and colors, you can create many beautiful works of art. Day one will be filled with idea development and working with watercolor. Day two will encompass cutting and gluing your artwork into a beautiful relief collage. Create a timeless landscape, a pot of flowers, or try your hand at an animal scene. No experience or materials are necessary. (Using a photo as a reference is ideal.)
