Ann Bain Workshop

Content Into Form with Ann Bain

bainAnn Bain of Dayton, Ohio will share her expertise in creating meaningful and artistic collages. Her collages exhibit vivid use and coordination of colors within pieces and from piece to piece.  She combines the arts of painting, drawing, poetry, drama, color, composition, ideas and words under the encompassing category of “lettering arts.”  In her work she likes to tune in to images, shapes, colors or textures that amplify an author’s meaning, and engage the viewer’s imagination in the process of understanding.  In turning content into form, her intention is for her art to call attention, to clarify, to aspire, to inspire.

Prospective participants should begin finding a particular personally meaningful passage they would like to work with.  It does not need to be long, perhaps just a phrase, but it should be personally meaningful.  Participants should also start collecting scraps of images, old writings, rich papers to use in the collage.  Other supplies would include basic tools, gel medium, chalks or pastels, decorative papers, old practice papers, tear sheets of things you love, and a full sheet of 140-300# cold press paper.  We’ll have bottled water and a crock pot of soup but you’ll need to furnish other snacks and drinks you might want during the day.
