Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Produce a themed collage series of eight?24" x 24" paintings and one diptych painting using acrylic, mixed media, and hand cut collage on clay board. I will evaluate this project by holding interactive presentations and workshops and by having a journal at the exhibit locations for public comments. My main goal to create paintings expressing ideas and images to others in a cohesive, meaningful, and visually exciting series. Successfully introduce viewers collage art, magical realism in art and a new vision of Minnesota's wilderness.
