"The Psychic" By David Barnett

 

      This workshop will provide the beginner as well as the artist with the fundamental principles of collage and mixed media in a lively and engaging atmosphere. It will strive to foster the development of the student’s personal voice through engagement with the tools of collage, towards experimentation and discovery. The approach may vary as widely as does each individual’s personality. The goal will be to help each student find their own identity thru the art of collage. The joy of typography, the playfulness of discarded labels and memorabilia or the beauty of a found object with its inherent aged patina are some of the options we will explore to inspire students to pursue their vision of this art form. Students are encouraged to discover thru trial and error the approach that feels most comfortable for their own artistic journey. 

 

     David Barnett’s work in collage, mixed media and sculpture has been exhibited in galleries throughout the country, including art fairs from Miami to Chicago. He has served on the faculty of Pratt Institute, Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Arts. David is currently represented by the George Billis gallery in New York City.
