Layered Assemblage: Creating Visual Complexity
February 18-21, 2022. 3.5 days.
February 18-20, 10am-5pm. February 21, 11am-2pm.
Martha Pfanschmidt, Master Instructor
Working with the techniques Martha Pfanschmidt has developed for creating her colorful abstract works, the students will use colored powders and tekta to construct multi-layered pieces that have a complex and yet clear visual language. From patterned and colored parts the students create they will develop larger compositions by cutting and re-assembling the parts into final “collaged” pieces. Students will create two finished pieces in this 3.5 day workshop. Suitable for any level.
ALL MATERIALS INCLUDED.

Making art is speaking in a visual language. Glass and paintings are merely dialects of the same language. Color, tone, line and shape are some of the words that make up that language. In my work these elements are the expression of the sensual life made visible. The world as I physically experience it is what gives mejoy and solace; I aspire to articulate those emotions through art. - Martha Pfanschmidt
