Collage: Materials and Process
Introduction to the history and the many ways to make collages.
Collage is considered the most important art form of the 20th century as it changed the way artists saw the world and how they composed work, whether in collage itself, or in drawing, painting, sculpture and photography. This course will cover some of the major historical and contemporary trends in collage making, starting from its early days with Picasso and Braque to Surrealism, to today’s use of digital applications. Students will learn a variety of ways to create exciting and richly coloured and textured surfaces. Other topics will include: uses of colour; surface treatments using both dry and wet media; creating hand decorated collage papers; acrylic transfer skins; working with photographs; applying stencils and masks; working with found objects and ephemera and Image transfer techniques. The class will involve presentations of historical and contemporary collage artists to accompany the various class projects. Suitable for all levels. THURSDAYS, SEP 21 - DEC 14, 10AM - 1PM IN-PERSON
