In this class, we will explore multiple approaches to visual communication through collage and image transfer techniques, including but not limited to mixed media, 2-D planes, relief and 3-D surface work. Through the review of the work of modern and contemporary artists who utilize these mediums, we will gain inspiration and incorporate our learned collage and transfer techniques into personal, visual narratives. Be their work representational or abstract, students will have the freedom to approach their art with an initial plan, or work intuitively.
