INTRODUCTION TO COLLAGE
This course is open to all levels of experience and will be facilitated in english.
Collage explores new ways of re-imagining our surroundings and making strange what is familiar. As a ‘copy and paste’ medium it has never been more relevant in today’s image-saturated society.
Using magazine clippings and other easy to find materials, Nina Fraser will guide participants through a variety of collage techniques and methods to inspire your approach to the medium. Adapting to the online platform, she will deliver exercises you can easily do on your kitchen table.
This course includes references to Art History as well as contemporary artists who use it as a process or as a final work.
| Hours: Tuesdays: 9, 16, 23 and 30 of June from 3 pm until 5 pm

Collage in Space relates the two-dimensional page to the three-dimensional field, allowing compositions to stand freely and take on a new life as a sculptural object. This series of workshops explores both construction methods and ways of thinking in space, using everyday materials and photographic imagery as building material.
Inspired by the concept of futuristic and invented cities explored by artists such as Constant Nieuwenhuy, Paul Noble and Luca Galofaro, Collage in Space is a chance to construct a world from your imagination. You do not need a preconceived idea, as the creative nature of collage will open up pathways for new connections and ideas to form as you work.
