Memory Blocks: Mixed Media Workshop

March 5th, 10:00am - 3:00pm

Using photocopies of vintage family photos, paint, tapes, stickers or stamps or any other smaller elements of your choice, we’ll start on a 12″x12″ panel and learn the basics of playing with composition, scale and painted enhancement. Taking inspiration from well known collage artists, such as Joseph Cornell, Robert Rauschenberg, Man Ray, among others. Over the course of 5 hours, participants will create 1-2 mixed media artworks, on 12 x 12″ wooden panel.

This workshop will be taught be Mark J. Gleberzon, a Toronto-based multimedia artist.
