Oct 2019 Meeting – Collage with Stephen Halpert

We have an exciting demo planned for our next meeting on Tuesday October 15th 2019 6:30 to 9:00!

Our October 2019 meeting will feature a previous member of the Blackstone Valley Art Association, Stephen Halpert. Stephen and his wife Tasha were officers of the BVAA and helped begin the original Grafton Arts Festival.

Stephen is noted for his complex and beautiful collages.

Stephen will speak initially about the art of collage, giving a brief historical chronology , then discuss aspects of design like the law of thirds, balance, color contrast, and more. Then participants will be given boards and asked to make 3 collages of 5, 10 and 15 cuttings. That will be followed by Q&A. 

Please plan to attend to see his work and participate in making a college yourself. Bring a pair of scissors, we will have everything else!

This meeting and workshop is free and open to the public. No experience is necessary. The fun of our workshops is that we all try new things we’ve never done before.

Our meetings cover BVAA organization business from 6:30-7:00pm and then go into the workshop part of the evening. Feel free to come for whichever half interests you the most. In general, our monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month unless otherwise announced.

All are welcome – this workshop is open to members and non-members. Feel free to bring along a friend! We’d love to see you there to try some new things and explore your creativity!

Ask with any questions!

Our meetings are supported in part by grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
