Each individual’s strengths and inner life narrow the focus in this workshop, combining a personal lens with the visual energies of collage. New possibilities – and perhaps new directions — are opened. Participants engage with their work using their own skills and sensibilities to give collage vitality through enlivened form.
Working from a range of materials is encouraged. Cut and torn painted paper along with printed media ranging from old photographs to fragments of previous studio work support a spirited approach to interpreting observed and experienced worlds.
Basics of technique are presented in a simple way, clearing the path for revelations of process and experimentation through small studies done in tandem with longer-term and more fully developed collages. Ongoing individual feedback is followed up in a final group critique. Open to all levels of experience.
Acrylic paint and adhesives are recommended. Paper is used as the surface support. Supply list provides specifics and options.
