Collage is one of the most accessible forms of creative expression. In this class, we springboard off the flat surface. Students will make several collages, then try techniques that can add three-dimensional interest to the collage: color choices and value, raising elements, thinking beyond the edge of the collage, exploring + creating dimensional materials. The goal is not to create a finished object but to work freely and without constraints in a spirit of exploration.
Sarah Bearup-Neal graduated from Michigan State University with a BFA/Studio Art. She maintains an active studio practice focused on fiber art and collage. Sarah manages the Glen Arbor Arts Center’s Exhibitions Program.
The goal is to scour your home and holdings for the materials and supplies you’ll need to make your collages. The Collage Challenge: Reuse + Recycle!
Papers, e.g., magazine images + text, travel brochures, newspaper, book pages, scrapbook paper, calendar, napkins, handmade papers, menus, stamps, stickers, maps, seed packet, letters, handwritten notes, sales receipts, clothes pattern paper, food can labels, safety paper [i.e., that’s the paper with images and symbols printed on the inside of envelopes provided with your monthly bills and bank statements], old greeting cards, product packaging, movie tickets, tissue paper, wrapping paper, canceled checks — the options are endless.
Copies of favorite photographs
GAAC will supply cardboard substrate for creating collages, crescent board, and foam board for 3-D lifts, Tyvek, and heating tools.
