Join Althea for this one-day, fun and relaxed workshop where you will learn this painterly form of torn-paper collage! Instruction begins with paint-on-paper techniques, and continues with paper-tearing tips, color and value play, and application techniques. Students will create their own artwork using the subject of their choice by integrating a variety of hand-painted, handmade, decorative and recycled papers. All skill levels welcome. Returning or advanced students with a variety of papers are welcome to a collage-only workshop.

After settling down to raise a family, Althea returned to her roots as an artist. Now residing over 30 years in Arizona, Althea celebrates her connection to the desert environment working out of her home studio in far north Scottsdale.
