Collage is an exciting form of art that is a great way to express your creativity with no rules or critiquing allowed. Mixed Media involves all tapes of meterials and workshop participants will learn about the unlimited possibilities of this genre. At the end of the three day course, all requirements for the Collage Badge will be completed.
Day One : Collage and I
Students will learn what collage is and the many forms it can take. We will examine different art movements that incorporated collage and the different effects it can have on a piece of artwork. We will spend time gathering materials and creating compositions that are aestetically appealing, based on subject, pattern and color. We will then spend time creating a collage that speaks about the creator.
Home Activities: Gather photographs (of friends, family, pets, vacations) that you are willing to cut up and bring them to class tomorrow!
Day Two: Unexpected Layers
We will create a journal using photographs and other found materials (cloth, decorative papers, stickers, stamps, drawings...). We will discuss different techniques for art journaling and ways of incorporating collage into everyday entries that are fun and easy.
Home Activities: Finish your first art journal entry!
Day Three: Collage and Sculpture
Students will have the experience of collaging a three dimensional object and learn techniques for sculptural collaging. Students will learn to look at ordinary materials in extraordinary ways and how to use them innovatively. Student will be encouraged to send a message or tell a story in their collage.
Home Acivity: Keep Journaling!
