Abstract Newspaper Collage

Instructor: Instructor: George Shively


This workshop is intended to use torn newspaper as a base for a free-form pastel and colored pencil abstraction. The print on the newspaper will become part of the design. We’ll use chalk washes and pencil to develop the patterns created by the torn newspaper edges and explore the endless design possibilities of this process. Friendly patient instruction.

George Shively received his educational and artistic training in the Cleveland, Ohio area. He graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a degree in Industrial Design. He also received a degree in Education from Case Western Reserve University and a Master’s degree in Education from Cleveland State University. He was a public school Art and Humanities Teacher in northeastern Ohio for thirty years.

As an art instructor, he coordinated many group mural projects. He used this artistic venue as a means of demonstrating the importance of group cooperation as well as the importance of individual one-pointed focus. He took part in the China U.S. Conference on Education. During that trip he gave several presentations on coordinating group mural projects.

George is an avid hiker. He finds great artistic and spiritual inspiration in nature. His paintings and drawings are metaphysical dream-like visions of nature and the American West.
