Have you ever looked at a picture of a pear and thought it looked like a nose? Or a car grill that looked like teeth? Or fried eggs that looked like eyes?
In this workshop you will create whimsical, unique collage portraits out of shapes, colors and things that you see everyday in magazines, newspapers or online. It’s a visually fun, creative puzzle that becomes your art. The idea is to exercise the creative muscles that we all have by going beyond the ordinary to work that exhibits greater imagination.
Hank Feeley is an author, painter, and sculptor. He is a graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Harvard Business School. He has been a Visiting Artist at SAIC and an Artist in Residence at Ox-Bow. He has taught at Roosevelt University and the Dennos Museum and currently teaches at McKee Gardens and The Gifford Youth Achievment Center, both in Florida. His work is held in public and private collections nationally and internationally. He is represented in Chicago by Aron Packer Projects and, in New York, by First Street Gallery.
Bring scissors and lots of magazines, newspapers and downloaded images from which you will get the elements for your collage portrait.
Also bring a bag lunch and plenty of liquids.
