Workshop Description:

The Intuitive Process of Collage
The art form of collage is an intuitive process of concealing and revealing, adding and subtracting until you reach a desired image. Students will learn the fundamentals of collage, design skills and the opportunity for new spontaneity as they explore exciting collage techniques. We will cover the proper techniques, adhesives and materials for the fine art of collage. Both those new to collage and people with previous experience will benefit from this workshop as it is designed to engage any level of interest. Each participant is ensured to come away inspired. Day one will be about creating individual unique collage papers, coating them with polymer medium to prepare for the tack iron process. Day two consists of exercises in compositional layouts; images transfer techniques and exploring the intuitive process of creativity in their collage artwork. Please note the collage workshop is set up on two separate Saturdays to give working individuals the opportunity to participate in this Collage workshop.
