What you'll do

Can't draw? No worries—make art and relieve stress through collage.

Collage has so many possibilities and is a great way to create amazing compositions. Use this online experience to play around and experiment, see what others create, and explore the endless possibilities of design. Collages can be figurative or abstract—it's a perfect method of image making to use in a creative visual journal or to frame as art.

Join this fun virtual workshop where you discover collage techniques, colors, and textures. You’ll compose your images from magazines and papers to create striking designs—it’s all up to what you want to make, but I’ll be here to offer guidance and expertise.

Fran’s collage class was much more interesting and enjoyable than I expected. Fran was setting up when I arrived early and immediately engaged me in a lovely social interaction. Fran kept up the fun chatting AND provided great instruction with ongoing support and ideas to all participants. Plus, I got to visit Australia and I have a new friend!

Fantastic way to get your creatives juices flowing after months of staying home! Fran was excellent at helping us newbie collage makers take the first steps. I really appreciated all of the ideas. I live in the Northwest US - it was so cool to be connected with an artist in Australia. She looked at my work via our Zoom connection and gave me a number of different things to try. The was my first on line art class in a collaboration room. Fran made it work really well!

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. I wanted to try something new, with very limited recent art/craft experience. Fran shared her skills in a friendly, accessible way. It was hands on from the beginning and I enjoyed seeing the samples of Fran’s work. I lost myself in “flow” for a few hours and am looking forward to doing more collaging on my own for relaxation.

I have been creating collages for several years but wanted to expand the scope/style of my projects. I signed up for Fran’s class hoping to pick up something new and different and Fran delivered! I learned a new style, a different perspective and approach. Fran encouraged me to do push my boundaries, gently of course. I am excited to apply my newfound knowledge. Thank you Fran for a great class.

Loved this experience. It was so much more than collage, and collage would have been more than enough! It was a way to lose oneself in a craft, as well as a wonderful, low-pressure way to learn and practice composition and color theory.

My girlfriend and I decided to do 3 online Airbnb experiences over Memorial Day weekend and this was our top experience. Time flew by. Fran was super responsive to questions I had before our time together. She was really inviting and allowed for a lot of chit chat and laughter. She gave clear directions, reinforced the spirit of fun over perfection yet also shared knowledge to help us make beautiful collages! She took active and genuine interest in everyone on the call. She even went over time with us so we could all complete our collages. I was so deep in flow doing this experience I was shocked when the end time came up and I had to leave for another appointment. I think this sense of flow speak a lot to the virtual environment Fran was able to create and the nature of working on collage as well.
