Have a great time creating a “ready to display” photo collage from your own pictures inspired by the scenery, plants, and flowers of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. On day one of this two-day workshop, instructor Shelley Row will introduce basic points for taking well-composed photos with your phone. After preparing wood panels for our project, you will have time to explore the Garden and take pictures. Each participant will select two images to print before day two of the course. Through cutting, gluing, enhancing, painting, and designing on the second day, you will finish your collage masterpiece. This workshop is fun and accessible for all, blending photography with mixed-media collage. Be sure to bring your phone to class!
