Vancouver Island School of Art

302-733 Johnson St, Victoria, BC V8W 3C7 250-380-3500

Supply List - Collage: Paper as Paint


- Vogue Magazine (any issue): Vogue is ideal due to the high quality of images and designs (a second choice would be any fashion magazine)*

- at least two large (21 g) high quality glue sticks (such as UHU permanent)

- package of coloured cardstock such as Bright Essentials 8.5" x 11" Cardstock Paper by Recollections®, 200 Sheets, $14.99 (available at Michaels or Staples); any package of coloured cardstock 8.5 x 11” will suffice

- pad of coloured construction paper (such as Crayola); construction paper is low quality but the more faded colours and rougher texture can work well to offset the bright cardstock

- additional surfaces to work on: cereal boxes, cardboard boxes, mat boards, etc. (we will be using the coloured cardstock as surface as well as for collage but I encourage you to look around for other suitable “found” surfaces)

- scissors (small embroidery scissors and larger shears)

- x-acto knife and cutting board (optional)

- collage papers (optional): any papers or magazines, books or calendars you might have around that could be used.

*VISA has some magazines available for your use
