    HANG OUT WITH AN ICON 

    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.

    CAA MEMBERS $85
