This fun and challenging course will introduce the fundamentals of transforming papers through paper cutting processes and creating a wide range of collage works. We will work with a variety of intriguing papers and collage materials such as photo-based imagery, vintage maps and other paper ephemera to fine washi and patterned papers. We will transform this material through elaborate cutting strategies and re-assemblage with glues, mediums and stitching, as well as in combination with painting and drawing. We will explore both image-based works and abstraction through compositions using pattern and repetition, layering and transparency, as well as negative and positive cut out shapes.
This course will also explore the rich and vibrant history of paper cutting and collage as well as explore contemporary artists working in collage and paper arts today.
Collage Explorations offers all students an opportunity to expand their thinking about composition, process and materials and offers exciting art making possibilities for students who are coming from drawing and painting practices.
