Rio Bravo Watercolorists with Laurel Weathersbee


Laurel Weathersbee will be presenting October 19th in her Torn Paper Landscape Collage Workshop 10:30 – 2pm

Las Cruces watercolorist and collage artist Laurel Weathersbee will present a workshop exclusively for Rio Bravo Watercolorists members on Wednesday, October 19 at the International Museum of Art. The workshop will focus on torn, hand-colored watercolor papers used to create a collage. Participants will create a beautiful landscape with the torn papers, accented with cut details.

All tools and materials will be provided. Participants need only bring a brown bag lunch and any ideas (sketches, photos, magazine pages, etc.) that might inspire a collage. My realistic torn- and cut-paper collage method is unique, developed over several years, and results from my desire to express the gorgeous colors and textures of the Southwest. I hand-color and texturize lightweight watercolor papers, cut and tear them into shapes, and glue them onto archival supports.

Rio Bravo Watercolorists is an art group whose meetings are open to the public.  Membership is $30.00 a year, due in September. We have a Facebook page, like us. We have a membership show annually at the International Museum of Art in March. Our meetings are on the third Wednesday of the month September through May at 10:30 am.
