Monday, October 22
in the KIAC classroom
Everyone is welcome!
The workshop opens with a drawing exercise, focusing attention on the human face as a beginning point to story telling in collage. Using a variety of collage materials, the story expands to include introspection or adventure, a personal statement or political commentary. Bring an open mind, follow the process and see where it leads you.
Please bring along a collection of potential collage materials for your own use or to possibly share with others, such as:
- discarded sketches, prints and paintings on paper to cut up and redesign
- journal or sketchbook pages
- life drawings
- rubbings for texture, i.e. taken from wood grain, textured metal, grave stones
- colourful or textured papers
- thin tissue
