We are hosting a FREE “Hands On” Collaging Demo with Ilvs Strauss on Saturday, July 16th, 2011 at 11am & 1:45pm.
Collage Artist Ilvs Strauss will present a solid definition of what a collage is to empower people to explore the range of possibilities that this medium offers. Collage is a simple and accessible form of art that is capable of conveying powerful stories through the use of seemingly disparate components. Because it can be made of materials readily available (magazine cut outs, glue, photos, dry leaves), and the technique (cutting and pasting) is easily mastered, collage allows for greater exploration with compositional elements of art as well as greater freedom for creative expression ie fun! Collages can be a great way to creatively catalogue old photos, create original, inspirational pieces and to discover greater meaning in the images you are drawn to.
This is a Special “Hands On” FREE demo so come prepared do some actual collaging. Basic materials will be provided, though please feel free to bring magazines (or other items) that have images that appeal to you so that you can make a more personal collage!
