Torn Paper Paintings

Wanda Edwards
May 16-17, 2015
Saturday & Sunday
9:30—4:30
$175. 

Call 442-0300 or visit the Gallery to sign up for the class.
A 50% deposit will hold your place.










Similar to impressionists use of colors or the tiles in a mosaic, Torn Paper Paintings, an unconventional collage technique, creates this same visual interest.  Small bits of handmade and hand-painted papers, rice paper, book pages, and maps, create the color palette from which the image is created. 

What to Bring
Please bring at least one 8x10 or larger panel or canvas on which you have painted a simple subject using acrylic paint for the simple underpainting.  Do not try to create a masterpiece; you will be covering it with paper. This is just to create your “roadmap” of your colors, shading and minimal detail. Excellent subjects to start with would be a single cupcake, a fruit or vegetable, fish, bird, or a very simple landscape or seascape.  See more of my work on my website: www.tornpaperpaintings.com

* Some rice paper will be provided to do some hand painting on in class. If you have other similar papers to share, please bring them along. Some paints and materials for this process will be provided but you are welcome to use your own.* If you are working from a photo, be sure to bring it.
* Brushes will be provided. If you have your own that you prefer to work with, please only bring cheap synthetic ones. They take much abuse with the gel medium.

* Gel medium acts as your collage glue. This is a clear acrylic. “Matte” gel medium ill be provided. If you prefer a “gloss”, please provide your own.
* Please bring a variety of papers, maps, personal memorabilia, multi pack of handmade papers from scrapbook or art supply store – variety of thickness (not cardstock) and textures. 

Day 1 – We will sort out our papers by color, discuss the pros and cons of varied papers, create some hand painted rice papers, and begin our piece.
Day 2 – Continue work your piece or begin a second piece if you brought one.

Elaine Reed Gallery Talk

Challenging Yourself to Grow as an Artist
March 15, 2015
3:30 - 5:00
$5 suggested fee

After the Rain, Portland
We will explore the importance of having a strong composition and value pattern before starting your painting. More important than that is to create a response to your subject that is uniquely your own.
Why do you paint? What are you moved by? What do you feel passionate about? We will discuss and explore how these thoughts and decisions can help us grow as an artist.

I have spent over 25 summers painting on Monhegan Island with an informal community of artists. This experience has been critical to my development as a painter.

My work is currently showing at the Mars Hall Gallery in Tennants Harbor Maine and can be viewed on line at their site and at tapwater-art.com as part of a NYC based group of seven painters.

I am on the Bath Art Walk which shows the third Friday of each month at my studio at 131 Oak St in Bath.
