Collage has been a popular medium of artistic expression since the 20th century. Artists such as Picasso used collage materials to create both representational compositions (including still life, landscape, and portraiture) and non-representational compositions (emphasizing color, line, and shape). With a pair of scissors, a little glue, and a lot of creativity, you will learn to transform magazines, construction paper, and tin foil into works of art.
Bring images and found materials to class to create your masterpiece!

When you see a beautiful hand-woven basket, do you find yourself thinking, "how could anyone do that?" Do you yearn to hand weave a basket of your own? Are you looking for a new and unique outlet for your creative energies?
"Over and Under" will teach you the basic techniques of basket weaving--an old and gratifying art. You will learn how to lay out a base, weave in a "locking" row, weave with different colors of dyed reed, rim and lash a basket, and even add decorative curls. At the end of the class, you will go proudly home with a usable and attractive market-style basket. If you can imagine it, you can probably weave it!
Discussions and examples presented in class will include weaving materials, techniques, and basket styles. Basket weaving supplies are included in the price of the class.
Becky Walker was taught her first basket several years ago by a close friend. Since then, she has studied under several nationally-renowned masters, including John McGuire, Flo Hoppe, and JoAnne Kelly Catsos. To keep her techniques innovative and updated, she attends weaving conferences across the U.S., and is an active member in the Basket Weavers Guild of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Native American Basket Weavers Association, and the Texas Basket Weavers Association.
