Have you been collecting bits and pieces of paper ephemera but aren’t sure how to transform them into a collage? Learn the basic techniques for cutting, pasting, and creating beautiful compositions and intriguing narratives in collage whether you want to work representationally or abstractly.
We will look at different types of collage, discuss collecting techniques, background supports, how to treat different papers, overcoming the fear of cutting into an image, and create a series of small collages.
Students are encouraged to bring any paper ephemera, old books, magazines, ticket stubs, or stamps they have collected to use in their own projects. Collage material will also be provided by the instructor.
