This workshop will introduce students to concepts and techniques of collage art allowing them to work with photographic materials from books, magazines & photographs to create their own unique collages. Students will get a chance to challenge their visual and creative skills through image selection and experimentation with different aesthetic techniques.

Students will be introduced to the world of collage as seen in Dadaism, Surrealism and Conceptual Art and become familiar with the technical possibilities of collage that can be translated into music, literature, film and beyond.

All materials are provided and no prior experience is necessary.
