Vertical Mini Collage Landscape Class

There will be two section to this class, first we will make the papers, "build a collage palette."

Second section will be the assemblage of the abstract mini collage landscape. You will have access to the whole process of assembling at once so you can work through it at your own pace. I find myself moving spontaneously through the steps that's why it will be offer all at once.  The class will continue to share long after on the Facebook private group-Lonecrow Collage Studio

You will receive an abundance of information on art materials, links, videos and downloadable handouts to save and use again.

The simple steps will be illustrated and you might find yourself becoming very prolific with it soon after. 

Read further as I hope I can answers some of your question about what this online Course will be about. 

The size is about 6 x 12 inches, makes for a nice piece of artwork for a small area. Their playful, fun, imaginary with a bit of whimsy. Our emphasis will be to defined the middle ground and distinguish a landscape verses the stratus composition, which is fun but can go on and on whereby losing the visual sense of the landscape. This we will watch out for.  

We will learn how to define this in a few simple steps. Please read through the information and see if this is a fit for you. Creative souls have been asking for me to teach this online way too long and I'm so happy to offer it to you now. 

Strata Composition

The Stratus Composition isn't a bad composition, but a challenging one. It doesn't always show what we relate to or understand a landscape to be, It's more abstract in style. Our main agenda and focus of this course will be to distinguish the horizon line. Where the Earth and Sky meet. In this space we will embellish and focus on with fun details. Some like to call it the "Belt" but it's really the middle ground. 

Tack Down Method of Collaging

In the Collage Classes that is taught in Lonecrow Studio that are not in a sketchbook we use an irons and we coat or papers.

When we aren't working with a tack iron, we are usually in a sketchbook with magazines and a glue stick.

List if some irons that can be used:

Green Encaustic Iron

House Iron General house Iron works, Cotton setting, no steam though.

Heat Seal Iron, "Tack Iron" These irons have become difficult to find, as the manufacture has stopped making them.

Oliso- Arts and Craft Iron, I just found this iron and it works great but of course no steam. I like this iron because it regulates the heat and set temperature.

Always use a safety release sheet between the iron and coated papers like parchment paper.

What is Abstract Art?

Abstract art has the power to show us something we may not have seen before. It implies both thought and no thought. Thriving on unconventional tools and a unique sort of energy, it's also a collaboration of mind and spirit. As a form of wizardry and magic, an abstract may speak both to you and for you more than anything abstract art can be a conversation piece. 

Building a Series

After you get the hang of the process and procedures you might end up having so much fun you could end up making a whole series of them. Color studies are another way to look at it too.

The Middle Ground

Rich fun angled layers can be played off of each other. Create an edgy landscape.

New Inspiration

This series sprang from the understanding of the Abstract Mini Collage Landscapes. They are fused to piece of wood and leather strap hangers are attached.

"Let the fun begin," Create the Palette, Collage to Abstract a Mini Landscape a Tack Iron Process.

Tack Iron Method of Adhering Collage Papers

During this course the method use is a bit of a lengthy process of coating papers on the front and back after they have been made or altered.

The papers are dried when assembling them and you use a safety release silicone paper or parchment paper between the iron and you will heat seal it together. "No Wet Gluing, Just tack them in place."

You can use your house Iron-Cotton setting no steam.
