Ron Alexander, retired professor of art at LSU Monroe, will lead this interesting use of many mediums to create art from inexpensive leftover items. Large cardboard boxes will be cut to provide a base. Collaging found items and using varied materials such as acrylics, Elmer's Glue, watercolors, oil base paint, alcohol, and polyurethane will be explored. Cardboard, denim, canvas, matboard, watercolor paper, print papers may be used. This workshop will spark the participants imagination to use most anything found in low relief or something made into an image not normally considered for a form.
