Text, Texture and Textiles with Anne Walker.

Collage: A Dynamic medium of Text, Texture and Textile by Anne Walker
Collage is an exciting medium that provides a dynamic process for personal expression. Collage is primarily a creative process of putting images, textures, and materials together with a sense of adventure. We will explore using a vast array of materials from everyday articles, papers and textiles to give a unique image of snapshot of your inner voice. The materials you select will set a tone for your creativity. Can you think of a subject you would like to explore? Sports, Trips, words, events, themes??
