Collage Workshop with Susan Lerner

April 7 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

A Shepaug Libraries Program

Hosted by the Gunn Library in Washington

In-Person Program 

Register here. 

Local Artist Susan Lerner will lead a workshop in creating artistic collages using magazine clippings. Lerner’s work blends personal photographs with vintage images to create complex visual landscapes that capture the past in a new way. She will teach us how to compose stylistic collages in a similar fashion. We will learn about the art of collage, different techniques, and supplies needed. This program is free and open to the public.

After a career as a Flavor Chemist, and as a mother of two, Susan Lerner was longing for an outlet to express herself and relieve the anxiety of caring for an aging parent with dementia.  On a whim, she took a collage class at the 92 Street Y in NYC and the minute she picked up a straight edge, she fell in love with the medium.  She has had the opportunity to exhibit her work in over 20 group shows, in Brooklyn and Chelsea, NY; Edinburgh, Scotland and  Wiesbaden, Germany and have had solo exhibits in New York City and Northwestern Connecticut. Her work has been published in numerous art magazines and books, most recently in  “Collage Care: Transforming Emotions and Life Experiences with Collage” by Laurie Kanyer. She is a founding member of NYCollageEnsemble, whose mission is to foster a community within which to share ideas, projects, inspiration, and support.
