Collage and Abstraction

Collage is simply the art of pasting together bits of “found” (discarded) or painted paper to create a whole new work of art. Modern collage emerged in the early 1900s as a popular expressive medium, and is stronger and more exciting today in fine art as well as graphic design. This class provides the space and framework to create some fun and compelling collage art through demos of design basics, painting and collaging techniques. No previous experience required. See Textbooks and Supplies for supply list. Students who take this class are invited to participate in our Summer CE Student Art Show. Visit our Art Show page for more information.

Virginia is an amazing instructor and really has a grasp on a wide range of mixed media and color theory application. She is able to provide support to all levels of artists taking the class and encourages student involvement so we learn from each other as well.
