BINDERS Atlanta Presents:

Friday – Sunday, December 4 – 6, Fri. & Sat. 10am – 4pm
ARTZ1582 | 3 Sessions | Beginner to Intermediate | Price: $375 | Limit 20

Registration Deadline: Friday, November 6


In this intensive workshop, students are taught a unique figurative collage technique. St. Hilaire will guide students through hand-painting their own collage papers with a variety of techniques including stamping, mono printing, stenciling, staining and resists. Students work from a photographic reference while exploring drawing, composition, proportion, value, color and collage application. Emphasis will be on developing form using light and shadow, just like in traditional painting techniques. No prior collage experience is necessary. Some painting and drawing experience would be helpful, but not imperative.

Meticulously torn bits of hand-painted papers, delicately put together, form the exceptionally vibrant collages created by Artist Elizabeth St. Hilaire. Richard Colvin, executive director of the Lake Eustis Museum of Art says, “Elizabeth St. Hilaire’s artworks have a fresh quality that belies the way they are constructed.”

Featured in the April (2014) issue of The Artists Magazine, St. Hilaire will also be published in the upcoming North Light Books’ Incite 2 Color Passions: The Best of Mixed Media in the fall (2014). A finalist in The Richeson 75 Online Annual Art Contest (2013) as well as for The Artist’s Magazine 29th Annual Art Competition (2012) both in the category of Animals/ Wildlife; St. Hilaire was also an award winner at the National Collage Society’s Signature Members Exhibition at the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum, Mesa AZ (2013) and took first place in the category of Collage/ Mixed Media for The Artist’s Magazine All Media Contest (2010). Not a bad run.

Born and raised in New England, Elizabeth has lived in Central Florida for the past 19 years. She holds a B.F.A. in Advertising Design from Syracuse University, which prepared her for a dual identity as both graphic designer and fine artist, she can switch gears at the drop of a hat! St. Hilaire is a signature member of the National Collage Society and crisscrosses the country several times a year to take her paper tidbits on the road. Teaching and sharing her collage technique through an intense 3-day Paper Paintings Workshop has become a passion.
