Collage has always been a relatively low-tech and materials-accessible medium. Explore methods for creating mixed-media using primarily household materials and other common items. Projects can be made in a small space and with a minimum of purchased art supplies, while still allowing for a wide range of creative applications. Learn how to use food- and plant-based items, recycled materials, and household tools and implements to fashion colors, make stencils for patterns, and create textures in artwork. Explore different approaches to collage and basic design principles. No experience necessary.
