In this mixed media Collaged Painting Workshop, you will learn techniques for creating a colorful, abstract painted canvas to use as a textured background for exploring the collage medium. In this New Americans Workshop, Raida Jarjes, an Iraqi artist, poet, and community organizer will walk you through the step by step process for creating a fun mixed media piece utilizing a vast array of collage materials including stickers, magazines, and more. All materials will be provided, but Raida encourages you to bring keepsake photos or other mementos you’d like to incorporate into your collaged painting! During the instructional session, Raida will share stories about her cultural ties to this art form & details about her growth experiences as a maker. Beginners welcome and all supplies provided for this workshop.
We’re thrilled to present this class as part of our New Americans Workshop Series in partnership with the International Rescue Committee, with funding from the Salt Lake Arts Council.
