Fine Art Paper Collaging Workshop in Austin, TX

You're Invited!

You're invited to the first ever Evergreen Art Retreat! Saturday June 15th, 2019 in beautiful Austin, TX. It will be a one-day hands-on workshop where you will learn the fine art of paper collaging. We’re SO EXCITED for this weekend of fun, artistic creativity, and friendship and hope you'll join us!

These aren't your grandkid's collages!

Local Austin artist, Laurie Carswell will teach the group how to essentially "paint with paper" creating unique and stunning masterpieces!

See more examples of what we’ll learn to make on Laurie Carswell's website and Instagram:

About the artist:

Laurie is an art educator who has stepped out of the classroom to pursue art-making. She paints with torn paper, magazines, newspaper, handmade paper, cut paper...anything she can manipulate in layers. When she’s not in the studio, she’s outside spending time with her family on the lake boating, or long-distance trail running or supporting activities at church.
