PVSC 2023 Winter Zoom Course: "Experimenting with Collage" with Kal Elmore Register View Cart

Kal Elmore is returning to teach her excellent 5-week Collage course on Zoom---
Tuesdays from 10:00-12:00
January 24, 31, February 7, 14, 21
Class is limited to 10 participants.


Simple materials become complex images and simple images can
communicate big ideas! A collage is an artwork created from a combination or
collection of things. Usually 2-dimensional, the "collaged" items are secured to a stiff backing material. Participants in this class will learn a few basic techniques and will explore collage options based on some project themes. Warning: collage can be addictive! Once you get started, it’s so hard to stop. Making art can be so much fun!
If you have taken this class before you are welcome to join in and continue to
experiment with collage techniques. Please try to gather materials for the first class. Kal will talk more about materials and processes when class meets.
