Print and Collage Your Plants


with Studio Two Three Staff

Calendar Oct 9, 2018 at 6 pm

Calling all plant lovin' folks! Join Gather Garden at Studio Two Three for a plant pop up. In this class, we will explore the work of collage artist Jonas Wood through monoprint, screenprint, and collage. Create your own collage of your favorite plants in their environments. Bring images or sketches of your favorite plants. All materials will be provided.

In his paintings, drawings, and prints, JONAS WOOD merges references to art history, his memories, and visions of the people, objects, and settings that compose the fabric of his life. Working in acrylic and oil on supports including cardboard and canvas, he presents portraits of his friends and family, interior scenes, and still lifes. Through his partially abstract rendering of these subjects and use of bright colors, he emphasizes patterns and forms while flattening out the space in his compositions.

Under the moniker Blue Skies Workroom, ALYSSA SALOMON designs and makes bags, aprons, books, and other delights for everyday living using her own screen-printed fabric and papers, lots of vibrate patterns, glowing colors, and sometimes chickens.
