Artwork, The Workshop

The Workshop | The Art of Whimsical Collage Faces

I’m always and forever going back to faces–I love the human face, the faces of animals, the faces of completely ambiguous characters. Faces tell a story devoid of words.

Nothing is more fun than grabbing some on-hand supplies and making messy collage art that yields beautiful, dimensional results.

Everyone’s creating process is different, organic and unique to them; however, I’ve found success in the way I layer papers, ink, paints and drawing mediums atop a simple piece of paper to cultivate these faces.

I am so excited to share this workshop with you! My heart is in teaching and spreading art love! If you enjoy this tutorial, let me know–drop me a comment or hit me up on Instagram @averykasperart. Most importantly, share this post so others can enjoy creating!
