What is collage art?
Collage is a technique that involves the use of multiple materials in one piece of art, including things such as paper, fabric, photographs and other items. They are then placed into an eye-pleasing arrangement around the central subject and stuck down onto the artistic surface.
The term itself is derived from the French phrase “papiers collés”, which is used to describe the cutting out and pasting of paper onto different surfaces. While the technique has been around from as early as 200 BC in China, the labelling of it as ‘collage’ in the word of art only began in the early part of the 20th century. Painting and drawing can also be included in collage art.
What happens in the Collage workshop?
Our collage workshop helps you learn the basics of the technique and the important elements to focus on. This includes ensuring your subject remains central to the collage so it can stand out from the other shapes, colours and materials placed around it.
You’ll learn how to contrast your subject to make it lighter or darker than the background and how to incorporate opposite colours found on a colour wheel. There will be a variety of different materials to choose from to make your collage, while the canvas gives you freedom to openly express yourself with confidence.
