CLASS: Collage Workshop

Creating curiosity, relationship, and layers of depth on one surface with artist / instructor Maarja Roth

Sunday, February 16th, 2003 from 12:30 to 4:30 P.M.

Collage is a gathering, arranging, and rearranging of common materials, ideas, clippings, photos and almost anything else, compiled into one visual form. Beginning as a folk art, the use of collage has reached into almost every art form and it uses almost any medium.

This introductory workshop will cover (1) simple to more complex compiling of images, (2) spacial relationships, (3) the use of textures and relief, and (4) a wide range of techniques in gluing to create a long-lasting surface.

Gather images, papers, photo copies and supplies you would like to play with in this guided workshop. We will be creating postcards, and a small accordion book, showing a variety of collaging techniques. Most of the basic materials will be provided, but whatever you bring to personalize and to add to the process will give you more options and more fun.

This is a class for any skill level. Come willing to discover your own creative side and to share with others.

Workshop Tuition $40 Lab fee: $10
