This workshop will explore the art of collage and its many materials and techniques as a form of personal expression. Students will cut, tear, and glue a variety of found and painted papers to larger paper, and work with media such as water-based paint, pencils, and charcoal. They will experiment with color, shape, texture, and line to layer compositions and organize images and ideas. Some projects will include three-dimensional formats such as assemblage and artists' books, when possible, with local artists who use paper. Reflection and dialogue will be an ongoing part of the workshop. All levels of experience are welcome. Students bring their own supplies and will receive a list of materials and small tools. For more information, please contact Susan Fleminger via email or phone (917-270-1675) or stop by the Park Slope Armory Membership Desk.
