Workshop in Collage

Instructor:  Deborah Stevenson

  • Thursday Morning
  • 9:30 – 11:30 AM
  • Class limit 12
  • Materials Required

With its roots in the works of Picasso and his peers, collage uses images from printed material to glue together into an original piece of art. The joy of this medium is that everyone can do it and have success. Cutting and pasting together is surprising, relaxing, and a very social activity, and it is always fun! Class limit 12

Required Materials: Scissors (both large and small), glue stick(s), printed material of all sorts, “removable tape” (a low tack tape the instructor can provide at $4.00 each).

Deborah Stevenson’s class includes an overview of collage from its beginnings to today and is structured around a series of exercises which emphasize a different way of composing a piece. The themes are a point of departure for exploration that yield many points of view– personal, political, humorous, or simply visually pleasing. The class will include demonstrations where she will share the tricks and techniques she uses in her work. No prior experience is needed — all you need is a pair of scissors, a glue stick, magazines, and a readiness to play. She looks forward to having you join in exploring all the exciting ways of making your own beautiful, unique works of art!
