ONLINE CLASS: Paper Love, Module 1, Handpainted Paper


Create a rainbow of your very own hand-painted papers! Join collage artist Dar Hosta James for a playful exploration of color, pattern and texture using a variety of techniques to produce beautiful, decorative papers that can be used in cut-paper collage as well as other projects that call for special, decorative paper. We will experiment with layers of paint using found objects, spattering, dripping and more as we work in color families. You will paint on Yasutomo Kozo paper and finish with a collection of at least 20 sheets of gorgeous—and very personal— pieces of hand-painted paper, as well as a toolbox full of paper-painting techniques to mix and match.
