Gerald Brommer Workshop
Saturday, November 11, 2017
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Includes a 1 hour lunch. Bring a sack lunch.
Coffee, water & snacks will be provided.
Gerald Brommer is a legend with over 170 solo shows under his belt, countless jobs as a juror and over 22 books published. He believes that all workshops promote growth and should include critique. So, he has requested that each person bring both a finished piece and an unfinished collage to complete. The learning experience will be about composition, texture and focal points. He will spend a significant part of this event working one-on-one with each collage artist. He has found this to be of great value to the participants.
WORKSHOP LIMIT IS 20.
Please visit www.collageartists.org to reserve your space.
