Water Street Studios School of Art

Studies in Collage: Scissor & Sip – “Spooky & Surreal” Collage Workshop(North Classroom)

with Carly Palmer


*This is the perfect group outing, bring your friends and family!

Join Water Street Studios School of Art Instructor Carly Palmer for a unique collage workshop!

This introductory workshop 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 images & ideas to tell a new story. The theme for this workshop will be “Spooky & Surreal” in which we will visually explore the mysterious & haunted, and perhaps just plain wacky, while being inspired by the art history movement of Surrealism.

This collage workshop is designed with the invitation to engage with one’s creativity through self-expression, play, and be exploratory by nature. 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.

One drink Included in price. Alcoholic or nonalcoholic drinks available. Please arrive a little early, as we will begin the workshop promptly at the start time. This is a one-night workshop.
