With Paper Collage Workshop, you can experience the joy of creativity as you use color swatches to transform photos into original, lifelike mixed-media collages.

In addition to taking you through both foundational collage activities and intermediate-level projects, this book introduces you to a unique analog-grid system, a color-based collage technique developed by the artist Sam Price over the past 20 years. Whatever your age or skill level, you will be able to add focus and precision to your creations and turn life into art.
Organized by both technique and subject, the book is designed to progressively build skills as you complete projects. Beginning with color-based lessons, you will learn how to use form and line, and then move on to create landscapes, abstracts, and pets. You will delight in completing beautiful projects you can frame and display in your own home.

Color collage is a mindfulness practice. Like a coloring book, Paper Collage Workshop is a personal meditative experience that quiets and focuses the mind—a great way to experience some true peace as you create. Whether practiced and exercised in tiny doses or taken all at once, the process of making art is truly transformative and relaxing with Paper Collage Workshop.

Author Biography

As a professional collage artist and an art educator from San Francisco, Samuel Price’s work has been featured in exhibitions, private collections, public art installations, and festivals across the country and beyond. He is best known for creating large, intricate pet portraits made by hand from hundreds of tiny magazine squares. For more than 20 years, Samuel has curated and developed a specialized technique that combines classical collage processes with his own unique analog-grid system. This method has helped him develop scale and precision in his portraits without the need for highly technical drawing or drafting skills.

In 2019, his work was chosen by Bloomsbury Press as cover art for a book of essays by James Baldwin, and he’s been commissioned by the city of Palo Alto to design an expansive 300-foot mural near Stanford University.

Over the past several years, Samuel has taught his techniques to students of all ages and abilities, and he's been thrilled to see an overwhelmingly positive response within the community. To learn more, visit Samuel online at
