These techniques will then be used in making live images of musicians (7 piece ensemble, The Alley Cats will be performing at the workshop from 3-4pm) and also explore abstract visual interpretation of sound. Attendees will get to make a piece of finished work that incorporates use of their collage materials along with drawing and painting.
