Shake up your visual vocabulary and put new ideas into play! Learn to compose with intention and a sense of adventure using abstract shapes in a dynamic, two-dimensional space. Using collage, we rapidly explore different strategies and solutions to compositional problems. Selected collage studies are then enlarged and interpreted as finished drawings in neutral drawing materials, such as charcoal, conte crayon, graphite, and color pastels.
