Create successful and satisfying artwork with cut-magazine collage. Instructor Lindsay Whiting outlines a unique process pioneered in Sonoma, California that can be used for self-expression, activating imagination, and inner growth.

The Sonoma Collage Studio method is not the usual "technique and critique" of learning a new art form, but a process where artists hang their collages after creating them to engage with the work. How are you connected to your art? What are you trying to say? The process you'll learn in this workshop provides a direct and powerful way of approaching our inner worlds and engaging imagination by combining the art of collage with the art of dialogue.

What we want to do is create a flow between different levels of the psyche to learn more about who we are as individuals. The images and archetypes we work with are universal, but they combine in unlimited combinations, to inform each of us in a very personal way.
