Cutting, pasting, storytelling! Join Brenton for a weekend of awakening new perspectives in your vision and ideas. We’re going to get a perspective on the history of collage as a medium and apply it to our own work. Brenton will supply this historical perspective and then guide you in making innovative and personal images with a range of materials.
The materials of culture, small objects, glue, paste, fine papers, string, cloth fragments, images from photographs. These will become the raw materials of images later on scanned, rephotographed, displayed in shadow boxes. A weekend of discussion, innovation and friendships and camaraderie in our individual studios. Tearing, cutting and reassembling images into new possibilities. Brenton will share many visuals and illustrations with you of collage in all its forms.
A materials list to gather will be supplied upon enrollment to the class.
