Service Description

Instructor: Bill Ryan 8 Weeks 9:30AM-11:30AM Course Dates: March 21, 28, April 4, 11, 18, 25, May 2, 9 Cost: $200 member $215 nonmember Location: Ambler Art Center 45 Forest Avenue Ambler, PA 19002 Course Title: Collage/Mixed Media This course is designed to introduce students to the techniques, materials, and concepts of collage and develop this artform by incorporating the use of other media. Students will explore the creative possibilities of combining various materials to create unique works of art. The course will cover a range of topics including composition, color theory, layering, texture and surface manipulation. Through the process of experimentation and exploration, students will develop their own artistic voice and gain an understanding of the different ways mixed media and collage can be used as a means of personal expression. We will also discuss what artists have produced in the past and how they are exploring this area of expression today. About the instructor I have been interested in art for 50 years and I think the primary driver for this interest is my experience of the aesthetic response. I see something or imagine something that is emotionally moving and want to express it. I see a beautiful painting and want to know how it was done. Development in art requires practice and more practice. Sometimes I think the study of color alone could be enough but there is much more. I like to draw and paint, mostly abstract, do collage, and also use the computer to make graphic designs and mandalas. I have had a career as a retail florist, and also as a painting contractor and faux finisher. I maintain a studio in Willow Grove, and live with my wife Maria in Roslyn, Pa. Refund Policy Sometimes due to unforeseen circumstances a class must be cancelled. When that happens, we will be happy to credit you for another class or a different session throughout the year. This credit will be good for one (1) year and can be used for any class that has availability and space.
