Session 4: Thursday, July 29, 11 a.m.–12 p.m. PT

• Theme: Collage
• Artwork: Nathaniel Mary Quinn's C’mo’ and Walk With Me (2019)
• Materials: pen or pencil; paper; cutouts from photographs, magazines, or newspaper; glue or tape; scissors (optional)
• Description: We will discuss collage and mixed media as ways to create a picture. Quinn’s two-step process for creating portraits involves first finding images from photographs, magazines, and newspaper. Then he cuts and layers them together to create an image of a person he’s thinking of. Next, he looks at his collage and draws on a separate sheet of paper what he just made. The final drawing is what he presents as his completed artwork.
