Join historian and artist Brenton Hamilton for a two-Saturday investigation into the exploration of photographs, images, and mixed media. This is an extension of Brenton’s collage weekends with Maine Media.
Brenton will present a wide-ranging historical journey, lecturing through the development of collage and media forms, and especially assemblage. With a special concentration on combined materials such as paper, photographs, ink, and marks.
The first Saturday is designed to show the history and practice of this exciting way of making – focused specifically from the 1920s until now! Students will get a strong historical basis for these practices. Our goal is to provide a chance to make an intensely personal object. Assignments and special investigational prompts are given, and all students spend time in their own studios working during the week.
The second Saturday session is for providing feedback, group discussion, and surveying the field.
If you are an alum of Brenton’s collage series – this will add assemblage to your practices!
