Mixed Media Collage
December 4, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Soraya Sarah Nazarian Program in the Fine Arts
Collage is a work of art that includes glued papers/objects. In this Mixed Media Collage course we will discover various ways to create interesting papers for use in collage while learning how to incorporate paint, printing and image transfer techniques. No previous experience is necessary and while basic compositional principles are discussed, there is room for an experimental and personal approach to the projects.
