In this course, we'll explore the broad spectrum of practices collage encompasses and discover their formal and conceptual possibilities--moving drawing beyond the page. Juxtaposing images, materials and concepts, practice combining different materials to create something entirely different from the sum of its parts. There will be an emphasis on the use of found and reused materials such as paint, wood, glass, and fabric, composition, combined with drawing from observation. Complete an array of individual and group assignments focused on both formal and thematic subjects.
