ABOUT THIS COURSE:
Collage is a wonderful format for experimentation and artistic growth. An improvisational medium, it is essentially a dialogue between intention and chance. In this three-day workshop students will work with hand painted papers to create numerous small collages with an emphasis on experimentation and play. Classroom discussion will center on formal attributes, creative strategies, and the psychological experience of abstract form. The workshop atmosphere is relaxed and supportive with studio work supplemented by demonstrations and slide presentations.
Recommended for artists and designers at all levels. Ages 18+
March 18, 19 and 20, 2022; Friday-Sunday, 9 AM–4 PM
