Artfest Day Three: Orly Avineri- Arboreal Messages

This was a workshop taught by Orly.  We each brought our own board book already gessoed or peeled away the illustrations. Orly began the class by talking about her childhood in Israel and how a tree made an impact in her life. We were all supposed to think about how trees affected us somehow.

We also brought a black and white photo of ourselves. Here I glued that down on one side.
Next we cut out a tree shape with a foamy sheet she gave us. We placed this over our photo and applied modeling paste around the stencil we made.
For this spread we used found papers we brought in. These were supposed to be  interesting papers we  picked up from the ground. We added masking tapes and applied paint. Lastly we sprayed inks ontop and blew with a straw to appear as roots of a tree.
Heres another spread I did in my book.

At the end we talked about everyones tree story and shared our pages.
