What we offer:

Course Image: Salvadore Dali, “The Face of Mae West” 1934. "The History of Collage" Thursday Evenings 7pm -8:30pm April 11 - May 30 (8 classes) Did you know that the word "collage," is derived from the French verb "coller," meaning: “to stick?" Collage was actually invented as a modern language in the early 20th Century by a few clever artists deftly playing with materials, inventing a pictorial language that transformed image making into a method of visual thinking that embodies the serious, playful, and radical reordering of space, place, meaning, time, and media. This course will explore the fascinating history of collage as an art form, but also as a contemporary language that expands on the traditional definition of drawing. Ideas of fracture, rupture, repetition, montage, image/object, and material process will all be explored as we look at artists throughout history who have used this powerful way of working to communicate complex ideas. Over the course of 8 classes, we will make several types of collages with a variety of media, materials, and approaches that investigate collage in its various forms. We will make patterns and textures to work with, be inspired by what has come before to make something fun and new, with interesting projects that combine compositional arrangements with visual poetry. Just a note: If you've been collecting images, old books, magazines, newspapers, fabrics, etc....this may finally be your opportunity to use them to make art! :)
