    Collage Prints & Canvas Bags
    by Creative Endeavors/Saratoga Bridges
    At Creative Endeavors, many artists enjoy making collaborative works. These pieces are part of a series of torn cardboard collages. The artists use everyday items, cardboard boxes, to create collages. The effect of the torn cardboard is quite painterly, and the pieces transform at different viewing distances. This green project allows people to work together while learning about color and developing a greater appreciation and understanding of art. Many people who were first exposed to making art through this process have gained confidence in their creative ability and have gone on to explore different media. Art has become an important part of their lives.
    Cost: Poster, no frame, no matting - $22
    Matted, White matting with no frame - $35
    Canvas Tote - $22
    Standard, black frame with black matting - $50
    Premium, silver frame with cream matting - $65
