Exploring Collage Art & Creativity With Nita Leland
In this art workshop, basic elements of design were assigned, paper, objects, gel medium and colors became the medium. Collage was created layering color, paper, and objects found trying to achieve some cohesiveness and the resulting images were the proof of visual broadening by the participating artists.
The visual experience is a source of self-growth in making better paintings be it modern, mixed media or traditional realistic paintings. Playing with the new techniques is the most important creative aspect of mixed media art if one wants to express self-using a creative format. It is a challenge but worth the effort by taking new directions and exploring new avenues as an artist, and learn about one likes or dislikes in new creative methods.
