Collage Class with Randel Plowman

Today I took a collage class with Randel Plowman ( at Bucketworks ( in Milwaukee.  Randel is a graduate student in Madison at the University of Wisconsin, working at the master's level on printmaking.  He has been making a collage a day on his blog ( and came to our town to share techniques. 

We worked on freeing the inner critic by making six collages in 30 minutes (none of these are going to show up here, youbetcha!).  Then we worked on gloss acrylic medium transfers and here is mine:

Then we worked on some transfer techniques and here are mine:

The class was a great deal of fun and my hope is that some of these collage techniques will be included in my assemblage work.

  1. Wasn't Randel's class THE BEST?!? I'm so glad I was able to take it as well (back in June, right in Fondy!). I learned a lot and it was really fun just playing. Show us your 6! I wanna see! P.S. These are AMAZING!!!
