Description

Learn to create beautiful and unique compositions of birds and flowers in mixed media as you apply  your own hand painted collage papers to colorful petals and plummage. You’ll learn to experiment with hand-painting, staining, stamping and patterning paper with a multitude of techniques. Learn to rip and glue and apply your papers in a ‘painterly’ manner over the top of an acrylic under-painting.

At the conclusion of this workshop you will have the skills to create impressionistic, painterly collages from initial sketch to complete and ready to hang finished artwork!

This class is focused on learning and growing creatively in a FUN environment.
No prior collage experience is necessary. All levels are welcome.

Meticulously torn bits of hand-painted papers, delicately put together, form the exceptionally vibrant collages created by Artist Elizabeth St. Hilaire. Richard Colvin, executive director of the Lake Eustis Museum of Art says, “Elizabeth St. Hilaire’s artworks have a fresh quality that belies the way they are constructed.”

St. Hilaire published her book Painted Paper Art Workshop internationally with North Light Books in August (2016). Elizabeth’s work has also been published in Acrylic Works 3: Celebrating Texture (2015) and Incite 2; Color Passions (2014), both by North Light. A feature article on her work appeared in the April, 2014 issue of The Artists Magazine, she was also a finalist in The Artist’s Magazine Annual Art Competition (2014 and 2015) and took first place in the category of Collage/Mixed Media for The Artist’s Magazine All Media Competition (2010). St. Hilaire was an award winner in the National Collage Society’s Signature Members Exhibition at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum, in Mesa AZ (2013). Online, Elizabeth was a Finalist in The Richeson 75 Annual Art Contest (2013).

Born and raised in New England, Elizabeth has lived in Central Florida for the past 20+ years. She holds a B.F.A. in Advertising Design from Syracuse University, which prepared her for a dual identity as both communication designer and a painter–these days she’s a full-time fine artist who’s only graphic design client is herself. St. Hilaire has earned Signature Member status with the National Collage Society and crisscrosses the country several times a year to take her painted paper tidbits on the road. Teaching and sharing her collage technique through an intense three day Paper Paintings workshop has become a passion.
