workshop

The Golden Foundation is pleased to announce the first of many workshops that will take place at the Golden Foundation Residency barn in New Berlin, NY.

Explore new ideas and innovative materials in this collage workshop with instructor Mary Alice Braukman. Braukman is a nationally known artist who has taught workshops throughout the United States, in experimental water media, painting, and collage.

The workshop will provide participants the opportunity to explore, discover, and play with waterborne materials. A thorough investigation of a wide variety of grounds, pastes, gels, mediums and color will take place on the first day, followed by use, exploration, and application by class participants over the next two days. A finished product is not the expected goal of this 3 day workshop; participants will leave with a portfolio of dried experimental films and acrylic skins for collage, a thorough understanding of the mediums, and an inside look at some of the latest innovative materials. Artists will be encouraged to find their own unique direction, whether working in an abstract or representational style.

Class size will not exceed 18 students Breakfast and lunch is included in the workshop fee. Classes start at 9:00 am and end at 5 pm. A tour of Golden Artist Colors facility and the Sam and Adele Golden Gallery, is available on July 13 for those who wish to stay after the workshop. www.thesagg.org)
