Studies in Collage: “A Cut Above” – Composition For Collage Workshop Series (For 16+)(North Classroom)

with Carly Palmer


This NEW three (3) part workshop series will introduce students to the art of hand-cut paper collaging.

Collaging offers a way to re-purpose & re-imagine materials. It also has the ability to create connections between disparate & ideas to tell a new story. The focus on this workshop will be on how to build compelling compositions for collage. Each week a new technique will be introduced and demonstrated. Students will be then be able to experiment and learn new techniques that will “nudge” their collages both aesthetically and compositionally to evolve!

Students will be guided and invited in creating their own collages in a supportive and encouraging atmosphere. All materials will also be provided. Students are welcome to bring their favorite magazines and/or paper clippings that they would like to incorporate into their collages.

If you are new to collage or looking for a more low-key way to dip your toe in collaging, I invite you to check out my monthly “Scissor & Sip” workshops! These workshops are more self-guided and freeform.

A more detailed weekly schedule will be shared closer to the start of the workshop series.
