Drawing & Painting Summer Session 1
May 29–June 3
Paper Collage and Color Forms
Students in this workshop will hone skills in color theory, painterly processes, and cut and paste collage. Working with collage materials and water-based media such as acrylic, gouache, watercolor, and adhesives, students will create a series of works using cut and paste methods on paper and other substrates. We’ll discuss form development, cutting shapes, abstraction, revision, and working in series. Materials will be provided, but students are also encouraged to bring their own collections of ephemera for collaging: magazines, photographs, stickers, wallpaper, wrapping paper, cardboard, fabric scraps, etc. All levels.
