ENRICH-0650 – Art Zoom: Collage (ENRICH-0650_COLL)

Visual Layers: Intro to Collage

Collage is a way of mixing media and creating paper layers to enhance your creative expression. It welcomes unique, personal approaches and can be an amazingly powerful way to tell a story or play with shapes and textures. Led by long-time Enrichment Program instructor and artist, Judith Cassel-Mamet, this class starts with the basics and takes you through the layering process by creating up to five different collages, all as practice pieces for understanding the media and process. In the first session, you create your “fodder” and learn how to work with layering paper and acrylic mediums. Simple glue techniques are shared as the layering depends on this simple step. During the second session, you complete different collages and go deeper into the layering process. At the end of class, you get the chance to share your work and give fellow students valuable feedback, all in a noncompetitive, supportive atmosphere. “I always emphasize finding joy rather than creating a specific finished product,” Cassel-Mamet says. “Students gain a comfort level with these media and some confidence in their ability to create collages for pure joy, for artistic expression and for storytelling.”
