Chris Cozen and I are pleased to announce the details of our new workshop, “Complex Collage”. Not just any ordinary collage workshop…take a look at some of the topics you will learn: Composition, shape, line, movement, background painting, transfer techniques, all about mediums with tips, tricks, techniques and support all along the way! Annnnnddd more!

This online workshop is called “Complex Collage” because we will be teaching you how to make your ordinary collage art more complex. No prior collage experience is necessary! It’s time to step your art up to the next level. You will be creating unique, meaningful collage in no time! If you are already keen to collage, you will not be bored!

Chris and I will be teaching you how to create 4 projects start to finish. We’re giving you a PDF that looks like it came from a publishing house, video shot in high def and free ephemera to get you started. Lessons open on April 1, 2010.

Although lessons begin on April 1, 2010, you may take them ANYTIME thereafter. There is never a time limit on any Land of Lost Luggage online workshops and the instructors for the workshops will always be available to help you. Work at your leisure!

Early bird registrants (those who register before April 1, 2010) will be eligible to win one of three early bird prizes. (See photos below.) Winners will be announced in our network on April 2.
