In this lively and supportive environment, you will create a still life and portrait through the playful and forgiving medium of paper collage. Sandy will share what she has learned through her artistic journey and enthusiastically guide you through yours. Each day will begin with a warm up exercise and end with a helpful critique. Be prepared to work vigorously and to have a good time! All levels of experience welcome. For returning students, we will discuss your needs prior to the workshop and decide what you need to move forward.


SANDY OPPENHEIMER is a self-taught artist who “paints with paper” in an intuitive and playful manner. She takes her inspiration from the great artists of the past, beautiful handmade papers from around the world, and from the fortunate life she leads. After 20 years in Italy, she returned to northern California where she continues to develop her visual vocabulary. She has received the A.D Abramson award locally, a grant from the George Sugarman and the Ruth Chevon Foundations, nationally, and was chosen internationally as an artist in residence at the MinoCityArtPaperProject in Mino, Japan.
