Collage as Landscape

Collage as Landscape

Collage is considered one of the most important art forms of the 20th century as it changed the way artists  made work and created compositions. Collage opens up a spontaneous and intuitive way to work with colour and forms. This workshop will focus on inventive ways to use shapes from fashion magazines, flower catalogues and books to create several landscape collages.

The first day will be spent making landscape compositions based on abstract shapes and colours cut from magazines. The second day will be focused on “photomontage” – the art of combining disparate photographic images to create a seamless composition. These collages will consist of cut out plants, flowers and trees to create fantastical landscapes.

The emphasis over the two days will be on making a variety of small-scale (8.5 x 11”) collages to give students the opportunity to explore a range of composition options with each exercise. The results will be finished artworks that could also be used as imaginative source material for paintings.

Approaches will rely on both spontaneous and deliberate ways of creating dynamic compositions. Participants will be amazed with the results that come from making art using only paper and glue.

It is a perfect medium for those on budget.  Suitable for all levels.
