Collage and Assemblage
Monday–Thursday, 1:30 pm–5:00 pm
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 11 students
In this workshop, students are encouraged to express their unique vision through a variety of collage and assemblage techniques, including printing and transferring images onto experimental and archival materials. The use of mixed media can be infinitely freeing, leading to inventive ways of personal expression that fit between the content of thought and the seductive qualities of matter. Students should bring any materials to work with: found objects, magazines, cloth, wood, metal, plastic, etc.
