This course is intended for students who have successfully completed Collage and Papercutting, and who wish to further their explorations. Students will work with found images, objects and text in combination with drawing, painting and a wide range of mixed media to create collage, photo-montage and assemblage. This course is structured thematically, with a series of projects based on one or more topics for exploration. Some of the past investigations include mapping and cities, and the sensory body. Students can choose to work on structured assignments or in a self-directed way with a view towards developing a cohesive body of work. Throughout the course, reference will be made to the history of collage as well as collage as contemporary art practice. These references will inform and enrich art making, dialogue, and discussion.
For the fall term, Collage Explorations 2 will have a special focus on Collage as Installation. We will make our thematic explorations (such as narrative and text, inside/out, and miniature worlds) as installation, in and around the architecture of the Kent School building site.
