Mixed Media: Classic To Contemporary Collage

Wednesday, May 22, 2019 from 4:30pm to 6:00pm


Mixed-media collage is a unique medium with few limits, offering the freedom to make bold and thoughtful choices. Most of all, it’s fun! During this eight-week course, students will be introduced to mixed-media collage techniques and materials through the works of artists past and present. Students will learn from the classic Cubist collages of Picasso and Braque, in addition to works by contemporary artists including Peter Blake, John Stezaker, Wangechi Mutu, and Matthew Grimes. Join us as we cut loose and collect, sort, tear, glue, and apply materials including paper, cloth, newspaper, paint, ink, magazines, digital images, and more to our works of art. Emphasis will be placed on process as students exercise their design vocabulary to produce finished works of art.
