Another Painting question. Try acrylic paints and acrylic medium. Gloss
medium works great as an adhesive and as a finish on top of our paper
collage.

I'm doing a sort of mixed media painting and need some advice on
attaching things. I'm adding a recipe to the painting that I generated
on the computer. I tried several different kinds of paper (regular,
cardstock, tissue). Don't know what would be ideal and then how to
attach? And then should I paint something over it like varnish or...?
Also adding two photos of my parents that I scanned and copied onto
photo paper. Again - how should I attach and should I seal over with
something?
I'm very new at all this and help is very appreciated!

ok, all you artists out there in the metro detroit
area.
I am volunteering for an after school program at a
Native American NON profit agency and they are in need
of acrylic paints and canvasses for the most part,
although we will take other good condition art
supplies too,
I cant afford to drive all over the place picking
these up but if you are willing to drop them off at my
place I can get them to the center then.
Please email me if you are willing to donate art
supplies
thanks alot and blessings be
Jeanette

Nora,
        I don't do collage often, but I have done what
I call a white on white collage prior to painting my
watercolors. The only examples I have were done by my
students. They "tore" and pasted various papers onto
a watercolor sheet using metlyn paste. It's just the
stuff you use for paper mache. As for photos, you can
print them out on all sorts of paper or transfer them
to various papers using a copy machine. I'd be careful
using an ink jet cause the inks are not waterproof but
that might give you a great effect. Here are pics of
my eight graders doing a collage and painting over it.

                Best of Luck, Woody

Dear Art Educators,
Some of you might be interested in doing something interdisciplinary
with music.
Here is a site that was featured in Scout Report.
7.  Song of America [pdf, Real Player, Windows Media Player]
http://lcweb2.loc.gov/cocoon/ihas/html/songofamerica/songofamerica.html
The Library of Congress has bringing a number of America's musical archives
to its website through the "I Hear America Singing" project, and this
addition to their existing work is most welcome. The Song of America websit=
e
is designed to serve as a companion piece to an ongoing 11-city concert tou=
r
which features the baritone Thomas Hampson performing a number of American
songs. This site draws visitors' attention to the world of the American art
song, which began to flourish in the late 19th century as a number of
American composers began to explore the world of the more serious "art
song". Influenced by the German lied and the French melody, composers such
as Charles T. Griffes and Edward MacDowell began to incorporate a more
refined sensibility into their works. On this website, visitors can learn
more about eight of these American art songs by examining short essays abou=
t
each piece, listen to an audio recording, and in many cases, viewing
manuscripts of each composition. Some of the songs profiled here include
Walter Damrosch's "Danny Deever" and Stephen Foster's "Beautiful Dreamer". =

Linda,
Drywall topping, especially the lightweight variety works well if you
put it on first then paint on top of it. It is cheap and fluffy. You
might try adding dry tempera to it, but I tried adding paint to it
and plastering my studio wall and it stunk  like sour milk for 2
years. I kid you not!  For my students, I had them put the "mud" on
masonite. It was dry by the next day. Then we tempera painted and
gold leafed the stuff. It lasts forever and the students were
thrilled to use "faux-painting" techniques.

Wow! I love the reflective quality through out the painting. The
colors and texture are gorgeous.  Did you start with a photograph, or
did you start with a compositional sketch and research and study from
there with photos and on location sketches?

I started with a photo. Frani and I took the triplets
to the beach at Santa Monica when we were out there
for Disneyland's 50th anniversity. We hit the beach
late in the afternoon when the sun was low and served
as a back light. I've got a bunch of good shots to work
from. I love working with dramatic lighting. But the
most important thing is working with a subject you love.
Our grandkids are 800 miles away back in Kansas. I talked
to their mom this morning. Seems like the 1st graders were
ask to write down what they liked best about Christmas.
Tess did not give the usual answers, like gifts, trees
and santa. She wrote was, "What I like best about Christmas
is that I get to see my Grandma." Now that's a great
grand daughter.
                One Proud Poppie, Woody

For Collages I use acrylic medium and we are able to paint over them and it
works very nice.  I sandwich the acrylic medium by laying down a layer and
then the paper and more meduim over that.  Works great for me.

Ken,
        What about watercolors over acrylic medium ?
Does that work ?

Thank you for the link to the National Portrait Gallery, it was of
particular interest to me
considering my father is the artist who painted the Neil Armstrong cover.  I
was aware
of the Time Covers web-site where he has over 27 covers posted, but the NPG
