In Gallery – Collage a Birdhouse and 3D Assemblages

April 10 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

$25 – $160

This class begins with collaging a premade birdhouse using papers and other creative objects, feathers, tiny nests, small keys, etc to enhance the piece.

We will then move using our collaging skills and techniques to a 3D sculptural art assemblage made by assembling diverse materials and found objects. Look for vintage game pieces, old, used locks, keys, old glass eyeglass lenses. Be spontaneous and have fun! From this “scavenger hunt” process a creative theme will pop out for your piece.

Regina Thomas’ collage and mixed media art is a mélange of visual stimuli, colors, and shapes involving different genres from the representational to the abstract. These multi-layered works portray her view of the world, never realistic, injecting her own narratives, metaphors, and icons. Regina works instinctually, and her desire is to stimulate and intrigue the viewer, make a connection, bringing their own experiences to the work.

Regina has lived and traveled throughout Asia and Europe. While in London, she attended Richmond University concentrating on the Art Disciplines as well as Studio classes. Upon her return to the states she continued refining her art through classes and workshops at RISD (Rhode Island School of Design), The New Art Center in Newton – MA, South Shore Art Center – MA, West Hartford Art League, Creative Arts Workshop/New Haven, CT, Yale University and The British Art Museum.

Regina has been included in many juried exhibitions in New England. Thomas shows in private galleries and has private collectors across the U.S., Europe, South America and Asia. Her most recent shows have been at The John Slade Ely House in New Haven, and The Spectrum Gallery in Centerbrook where she also holds classes in collage and mixed media art.
