Collaborative Collage:
Bring a painting or two that you don't mind parting with, or throw some paint on paper and help create a masterpiece with your group. We will break into groups, tear and cut paper, piece it all together in your chosen design, and produce a communal work of art. Feel free to bring "extras": markers, paintsticks, crayons, paints and a brush - use your imagination! The only thing you're required to bring is a contribution to the effort (and a pair of scissors would be useful, too). Foundation board and glue will be provided.
