Mixed Media Assemblage: The Art of Collage

This three-day workshop will help students create a collage by combining family ephemera and found or purchased materials to form a captivating work of art.
Monday, July 7, 2014 to Wednesday, July 9, 2014

Registration Fee: $275

Collage combines shape, color, composition and materials to activate the surface. In this three-day workshop, artist and educator Ernesto Gomez will help students experiment with a wide variety of media and discover new ways of designing. If you can cut paper and use glue you can create a professional, exciting work of art. Students should bring copies of family photographs, events, and your favorite vacation images to use as the basis for their collage. We will work with a variety of materials (of your choosing) to create a colorful, personal narrative. 

All skill levels welcome. Please see the suggested supply list for a list of materials to bring to the workshop.
