This 4-week class explores collage as an artform, technique, and tool for increasing spontaneous creativity. Deemed one of the most revolutionary artistic innovations of the last century, collage is a highly accessible medium for all. The activity of creating collage includes appropriation, assemblage, and craftsmanship. Students will develop critical artistic vision in assembling collages. In producing collage, the artist must include/exclude, mute/amplify, balance/imbalance, configure/reconfigure, and imaginatively enhance the various visual components of the work. Students will work with a myriad of visual data including vintage paper, found textures, and photographs. These fragments of visual information will be crafted together to produce collages descriptive of and sensitive to the various conceptual frameworks.

 

What to Expect: No prior technical knowledge is required for this class. Students can expect to spend the majority of class time experimenting with different methods of creating collage. We will explore various adhesives, substrates and composition theories. Instead of creating one large artwork, our goal will be to create many small experiments of finished collage artworks. Class to class, expect to experiment, and try something new.

 

Timeline:

1/17-Class 1 : The conceptual basis of collage: everyday objects and materials are transformed to be and mean something else.

1/24-Class 2 : Appropriation. Appropriation refers to the practice of artists using pre-existing objects or images in their art with little transformation of the original.

1/31-Class 3 : Transfer Technique & Composition Strategies. Experiment and test ways to transfer an image to multiple surfaces while studying strategies to create compelling compositions.

2/7-Class 4 : Configure|Reconfigure. Deconstruct our own work to create something new.

 

Materials: All materials are included in class pricing and will be provided to students on the first day of class.

 

Educators: Amber Cobb & Mario Zoots

Amber Cobb is a Colorado based artist, living and working in the Denver area. Her sculptures, paintings, and drawings address the ambiguity within intimate experiences. Beginning with the body as a point of departure, she unpacks the physical and psychological responses to life’s complicated interactions through abjection, attraction, and humor. In 2011, she received her M.F.A. in Sculpture from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Cobb has been exhibited in a number of exhibitions both nationally and internationally. This includes xiao shan xiao at the Hunan Province Art Museum in Kaifeng, Millennial Pink at Untitled Miami, and Palettable Relations at Galeria Hilario Galgura in Mexico City, MX.
