Learn the processes and skills needed to energize and make the surfaces of paintings complex, nuanced and rich with meaning. Explore the historical tradition of collage from Schwitters to contemporary mixed media artists.

Through the process of mixed media, found object and collage students will explore various background layering techniques in order to create rich and textured relationships between collaged surfaces and images.

Learn how to integrate dissonant materials in a composition to create a successful finished work of art. Historical and Contemporary examples will inspire students to find their own voice in a course that will take them on an inner journey of discovery and lead to a unique and personal iconography.

Learn color theory, composition, proper formatting and integrated image structures. Alternative and non-traditional materials will be encouraged along with more standard media.

This is a contemporary mixed media course that will redefine preconceived notions of collage.
