Whimsical or serious, personal or universal, collage is a highly versatile and accessible art technique that results in the playful combination of different and sometimes-unlikely materials. Collage evolved into assemblage through the integration of found objects and a broad range of unusual materials.
In this one-day workshop, students are introduced to the materials, tools, and techniques used in collage and assemblage. They find inspiration in artists who worked in collage including Joseph Cornell, Romare Bearden, and Gertrude Green, whose works are held in Smithsonian collections. Students express their observations by developing their own collage, mixed-media or assemblage projects.
Structured for both the nonartist and professional, this class focuses on the variety of choices in this medium. Whether constructing a piece of personal history through use of mementos or an abstract work, students learn through experimentation with color, form, and design. They explore the use of text, images, texture, and natural and found objects as they create.
Some shared supplies are provided.
