The collage techniques on canvas workshop:
This collage workshop contains three lessons totaling 77 pages, sent to you in PDF file form. Lesson 1 goes over a half a dozen different background techniques for creating collage on canvas using everyday household products and acrylic paint. The techniques are shown via written instructions & photographs and are quite easy to do. We will spend one lesson exploring the varieties of all of the techniques on both canvas paper and canvas boards. Lessons 2 and 3 will take you from start to finish creating a collage. You'll work step-by-step through the creation of a number of mixed media collages. Work right along side Lenna as you learn about jump-starting your collage and how to layer. This 3 lesson workshop is designed for both beginning and experienced students and will give you the information and experience you need to create many collages on a canvas panel, a stretched canvas or even on mat board.

Collage Techniques on Canvas Workshop Comments
Sarah Boblit says, August 7, 2010: I took the collage and mini book classes with Lenna. Her classes gave me a great foundation for making collage and quilties. The PDF’S were always there to refer to and I still look up techniques all the time. I know I won’t have to search my books for the answer. 9 times out of 10 it’s right in my “Lenna Book.” She was encouraging and enlightening and gave me a great foundation of information to draw on. And, she is just plain nice.Rena Matus says, September 2008: I had a great time and I was really happy that I was actually able to finish a piece in class.
Claire Hoey says, August 7, 2010: This class was so much fun. I was a total beginner when I did it and couldn't believe how Lenna helped me achieve such wonderful results with so much ease. I have used the techniques over and over since learning them. A really friendly experience. I jump at any chance to learn from Lenna as you get so much information. Her classes are always so informative and inspirational!
Bec Clarke says, August 6, 2010: I have read all the way through the course and am finished most of the exercises. I am a beginner in the mixed media and collage areas and this was really great to get me started with a heap of wonderful background ideas and then lots of ideas and inspiration on how to use them. It was well set out, great step-by-step and lots of amazing photo’s. I highly recommend this course, especially for a beginner in the collage field. There is so much information out there that it can be quite overwhelming but this course is a wonderful place to get you started and lose the fear of the blank page/canvas.
