Explore the fun and intuitive nature of collage in this introductory workshop. We will navigate through this picture-making technique by composing and layering found images and other materials on a blank picture plane surface, with the option to combine painted or drawn marks.

In the first class, we will begin with basic collage materials, applications and value. In the second class, we will focus on the concept of composition and layering as we continue to emphasize the expressive nature of collage.
