Jennifer Stone Collage

Creating original collage papers to suit your needs can be fun, exciting and gratifying! In this workshop, the students will be given multiple ways to create beautiful, original collage. These papers may be used in many ways, paintings, cards, books, etc. Do you want to create art that is unique to you? By carving and making stamps with your own designs, and using stencils as well, you can create papers that meet your needs. Oftentimes, it’s a surprise to you as well! 

After making collage papers, we will build design studies with a layering process. This is a fun way to learn design, the capabilities of your papers and create a painting in the process! It’s always exciting to watch the students put together these little paintings with their own original collage. These studies are a prelude to utilizing your collage in an original painting. The final day, the students are free to create their own paintings, whether it be incorporating collage into their work or building a painting with collage and enhancing it with paint. Numerous demos and individual assistance will be ongoing. It is my hope to introduce you to another medium to factor into your work!

Supply List

Making Collage and a Painting

  • Carving blocks.  A soft material, similar to an eraser.  These may be in any size you would like to work on. They can be cut down to a size you prefer if you purchase them in a larger block.  You may purchase them at an art supply company. (MooCarve is my favorite brand.) It has a very buttery feel.  I’ve also used the very large erasers sold at the Dollar Store in the school supply section. I will have some of these available for purchase if you don’t find them. 4x6x3/4”  Amazon

  • Carving tools. One brand is Speedball. Usually sold in a package with various tips. Hobby Lobby or the like, carries them.

  • Deli paper, unwaxed. 12 X 12 size . Go online or purchase from local grocery or deli.  There are two types of deli paper. Waxed and unwaxed. I prefer the unwaxed and recommend that you use this type. I will explain the differences and why this is preferable.  I will provide the deli paper.

  • Gelli Plate (optional) don’t purchase one, but you may bring it if you have one.

  • 12 X 12 canvas (you may bring more than one) optional

  • Acrylic paint. Does not need to be expensive paint. Craft paint is fine. Various colors. Include black and white.  This paint is for making collage.

  • Acrylic paint for putting your painting together. I use Golden fluid acrylics and some tube paint. Bring what you like but include black and white for mixing and for painting. NOTE: you can use your good acrylics for making collage as well, I just try to cut costs a bit by mentioning that you can also use craft paint for making collage. Having said that, we all know that good quality paint produces better work. You decide what you’d like to use. ;)

  • Brayer. Approximately 4 inch size

  • 6 sponge rollers. Sold in paint supply section in Menard’s or the like. 3-4 inch size.  These are just simple plain rollers. Not furry. They have a short plastic handle. I will have these available for purchase if you don’t find them, or bring the wrong roller.

  • 4-6 quart zip lock bags

  • Stencils and stamps

  • 2 water containers. Larger sizes preferred. At least LARGE Cool Whip size.

  • Paper towels

  • 1 full sheet of #300 watercolor paper, any kind

  • 1 package of white inexpensive tissue paper. Gift bag type.

  • Cardboard box for support board for making collage paper. At least 13 X 13 X 6. Try not to go much bigger than this as it will take up too much space on your table. Heavier weight cardboard is preferable. Michael’s sells a storage box that is close to this size and is so perfect for this process. I do have a couple I could loan out, but if you could find this item, you will be glad you did!
