Collage with paper and other materials is an art form used by artists working in a wide range of styles and subjects. In this workshop we will explore color and composition to create beautiful works from materials you already have at home. We will look at the collage art of contemporary and master artists including Picasso and Matisse to inspire unique work. The class will include instructor demonstrations and hands on making of independent projects with guidance from the instructor. Class members need no prior art experience. Class members with prior art experience will have the opportunity to experiment with new art styles, materials and techniques.
Required materials- paper or cardboard, scissors, pencil or pen, glue stick or white glue and printed paper. Printed paper selections may include some of the following-newspaper, magazines, photos, construction or lined paper, old postage stamps and junk mail. If you already own ink pens, colored pencils, watercolor or acrylic paint you may want to use this too. Please no glitter, oil paint or any solvent based art materials.
