MAL Workshop



September 1st Workshop: "Collage with Watercolors” with Barbara McFarland
I'll be demonstrating staining papers with acrylics for a collage background. Then we will paint our subject on top using watercolors with a direct method. Acrylic paints also could be used at this point, but you'll see why using watercolors is more forgiving. I will supply a collaged substrate and fixative spray for a $10 material fee.


  • Watercolors & Palette
  • Brushes
  • Water container
  • A simple subject idea (I will have some available)
  • Tissue box or Paper Towels

Class is limited to 12 students. Please register 3 days ahead of the workshop, walk-ins welcome if class size allows. Material fees will be directly to the instructor, class fees paid to MAL. Please bring your own lunch. If you have questions email MAL Workshop Chair, Sarah S. Thompson at [email protected].
