    DESCRIPTION
    Painted paper collage and textile construction are naturally interrelated. Both involve building art out of pre-made parts and both allow for radical improvisation in color and design. But, because collage work is far less time-consuming, it is the perfect format for the development of general design skills or the rehearsal of ideas that may be used later in quilt design. It is also, in its own right, an art form with a rich tradition in modern and contemporary art.
     
    In this class we will explore collage using painted paper with a variety of techniques. Work can vary in scale from very small to moderate. Each student will pursue her own agenda at her own pace. The goal is to produce a body of work in a supportive studio atmosphere with technical help, thoughtful discussion and critique. This is a great follow up to Hornung’s Elements of Design and Composition class but would also be useful to anyone working with intermediate to advanced studio experience.
