Collage Weekend

Rachel Cohen

In this two-day course we explore several different approaches to collage taking inspiration from 20th and 21st century artists. On Saturday we will be inspired by Dada and Surrealism to cut out and play with found images and words from magazines and books, recombining what we find to make strange faces, creatures and scenes. We will also look at 20th century collage artist Kurt Schwitters and make abstract collages of coloured and textured paper, incorporating personal objects such as letters, receipts and tickets. Finally we will paint paper to use on Sunday to make a large collage inspired by Henri Matisse’s cut outs.

Suitable for all levels.

Artworks are by previous course attendees.
