Barbara Fast Assemblage Workshop Nov 2015 1

“Assemblage” is defined in the dictionary as “an artistic composition made from scraps, junk, odds and ends (as of paper, cloth, wood, stone or metal).” This workshop will encourage participants to use many different materials to create a unique assemblage artwork. The goal of the workshop is to have fun, explore the artistic possibilities in different everyday materials, and complete a finished piece that will be entered in an Assemblage Exhibit scheduled at Gualala Arts in January 2016.

 Instructor Biography:

Barbara Fast Assemblage Workshop Nov 2015 2Barbara Fast, now retired from a demanding career as a pediatric surgeon, has long been a collector of objects she has found beautiful or interesting. Many of these objects have been incorporated into art pieces of her design and construction. She has collected several boxes of rusty metal and enjoys creating “rusty art”. Self trained as an artist in several courses at Gualala Arts and elsewhere, Barbara was specifically asked to teach this workshop due to her recognized skills in multi-media art.
