Decoupage and Dada Workshop

Art With a Twist


2.5 hours 1 to 6 label $60 - $80 ($80 per person when you book for 1-2 students, $60 pp for 3+ students)


In this class, you will learn about the 1920s movement that changed the face of Modern Art: Dadaism.

You will learn of the great Marcel Duchamp, Picasso's collages, Man Rays collages and learn how to embellish your art with gold/silver/copper leafing for a very special touch.

Dada was nonconsequential, absurd and revoked all rules.
Anti-art is a loosely used term applied to an array of concepts and attitudes that reject prior definitions of art and question art in general... It was used to describe revolutionary forms of art.

As a warm up you will perform a very Dadaist activity using scissors and a bit of chance.

We will write Dadaist prose, being very silly with a Thesaurus and commonly used expressions.

Coffee, Tea and Snacks will be provided.

I will supply much paper, magazines and books and you will decorate a decoupage box /or an art piece along with a frame using collage and applying text.

When you go home, you should have a piece that is absurd yet genius; that is beautiful yet shocking.

About Me:

I fell in love with colour at a very young age. At age 5 I would come up with Colour Combinations and assign matching colours to my family & friends. (I still do this)
I then learnt to draw and by High School I took upon Art for my HSC and it was then that I knew, not that I wanted to be an Artist- that I already was one.
I Studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts at UWS And studied further on a more practical level at Northern Sydney College where I excelled in Painting and Concept Development. I am an ideas woman.

My work is diverse and expressive, with many special touches and nuances and abstract allusions. I like to say, "I make colour dance in your eyes!" Within my paintings, there are many special hidden details and much lush materials used such as Inks, Pigment Powder, Embossing Powder and Gold, Silver and Copper Leaf. In short, my art could be described as extravagant and dreamlike.

Marina is very helpful and skilled. The materials she bought for the class were plentiful. I really enjoyed the decoupage class and found it relaxing.
I would recommend her.
