Collage is a highly versatile and accessible art technique that results in the playful combination of different and sometimes unlikely materials. It is a medium that allows for the fostering of unique expression through the use of materials in a new and unexpected way. In this course, learn through experimentation with color, form, composition, and design, producing artwork that is both representational and abstract. Explore how to use traditional media, such as paint, graphite, charcoal, and ink; in combination with found imagery, text, texture, and natural/found objects. Class will find inspiration through discussions of art history, and visual presentations of various artists who have worked with collage and mixed media.
