Title:   The Art of Collage      

Course Number:      GRA 0036A
Campus: Boston-Fenway   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

Picasso, Braque and Matisse launched the art of collage into the mainstream of Art in Paris. But even before that, the earliest collage samples were created by twelfth-century Japanese calligraphers who glued paper and fabric and created textured surfaces as a background for their poems.
Using materials such as photos, magazines, newspapers, wallpaper, fabric, paint, etc. students will create new images.
Topics will include the history of collage, and exploration of collage (the pasting or gluing of paper onto a surface), decoupage (cut paper collage), decollage (subtracting materials), mixed media collage (using paint or a combination of media with collage), photomontage (a collage using cut and ripped photos) as well as assemblage (a combination of three dimensional objects glued to a surface) . . . and other fun and exciting techniques.
This art form is like a kaleidoscope of images, where every turn offers new and surprising results. You can be creative, free, intuitive, original, and spontaneous. The possibility of change exists at every turn. No other medium gives such a wide variety of exciting possibilities. All levels are welcome!
