Mixed Media Methods: Collage Combinations with Laura Raborn | Wednesday – Friday | February 27 – March 1
Collage can be a subtle insertion within layers of paint or it can be a dominant image that serves as a focal point. Students in this class will learn how to create refined, provocative works by using various materials (such as photocopied photos) and methods (such as image transfer). Combine collage pieces with painting and drawing techniques to create multi-layered compositions. Play with surface texture, insert a subtle message, establish a pattern, express an opinion, cut up and reuse old artwork, and create abstractions using personal photos, photocopies, receipts, tickets, maps, newspaper articles, magazine images, and printed text. Students will explore how content and meaning can shift in relation to changes in color, scale, texture and imagery.
