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. Over the years, many artists in Europe and the United States adopted these techniques and produced art that gave expression to a new way of looking at and interpreting the world.
In this course, students are introduced to the materials, tools, and technologies 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 non-artist and professional, the class focuses on the variety of choices in this medium. Whether constructing a piece of personal history through use of mementos or an abstract piece, 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 artworks.
