Explore the fun and exciting medium of collage! Turn on your creativity and express yourself using everyday, accessible materials and images.
We will experiment with various collage techniques, emphasizing the element of improvisation, while exploring the use of different cutting tools, adhesives and paper. Learn about selecting and combining imagery, the fundamentals of composition and design, incorporating different materials and, finally, how to glue it all together.
Each class session we come together to play, share and inspire each other in a friendly and supportive learning environment.

Kirsten Francis is a mixed media artist and instructor living in Encinitas, CA. She studied fine arts and figure drawing in high school, and received a BFA in Printmaking from the Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland OR. A printmaker for many years, she discovered the excitement of collage and mixed media through her children’s preschool cut and paste art projects. Working intuitively with found images and her own drawings, Kirsten creates complex, dimensional artworks that combine everyday life with the fantastical and weird.
