week 2 was collage

the second week of my autumn
snow farm trip was alexandra sheldon's
collage class.
i shouldn't be telling you this since her
classes always fill up quickly and i intend to
go again next year but i've wanted to take this class
for years and it didn't disappoint.

for more images from the class go here

some of the eleven of us

first steps:
1. tear colors from magazines to choose a palette
2. mix acrylics

these are some of alexandra's
swatches and colors

and her painted papers on the wall

cutting out shapes

colors and shapes


the remains of the day
