This is a two session online workshop.

Explore the fun and intuitive nature of collage in this continuation workshop following Introduction to Collage. Students will have the opportunity to explore several techniques based on unique, personal interests and narratives. Students will develop compositional skills, a deeper understanding of depth, shape, form, and color.

In the first class, we will begin with a landscape collage project, focusing on the compositional concepts of color, and space (foreground, middle ground and background). In the second class, we will work on a build collage project, reimagining architecture, lines, shapes, and form.

The class will balance instruction, a significant amount of work time/studio process, and casual class feedback. This class is open to all levels and there are no prerequisites. Come prepared to glue!

Materials to Bring:

Collage requires a good pile of ephemera to work with. We recommend you start collecting your materials immediately - every scrap headed for the recycling bin could have a future life as art!

  • Something to cut with: scissors and/or X-acto knife and a self-healing mat
  • Any of these adhesives: glue stick, elmer’s glue, mod podge, Yes! paste/glue, Acrylic Matte medium, or PVA glue, with appropriate brushes/applicators
  • Any of these surfaces to work on: Bristol paper, mixed media paper, watercolor paper, cardboard, found recycled objects, or a sketchbook (recommended sizes: between 9” x 12” - 12” x 16”)
  • Collage materials in a variety of colors/textures/weights: a collection of your personal photos/images/ ephemera, magazines, newspapers, old books, maps, special paper (colored, handmade, textured, tissue paper, found objects, etc.)
  • Optional drawing materials: pencil, ruler, eraser
