Introducing the Collage
INTRODUCING THE COLLAGE
TUESDAYS, MARCH 4, 11, 18
7:00- 8:30 p.m.
The collage (from the French: coller, to glue) is an “assembled” work of art: a technique using bits, pieces, and cutouts of materials (e.g. newspaper, colored paper, cloth, photographs and found objects) glued to a board, panel, or canvas support. While such art work has been around for hundreds of years, it has perhaps been made more familiar to people by artists such as Picasso, Braque, and Matisse. In this introductory class, students will learn the construction of a collage and how to create their own work from discussions of technique, materials, composition and historical background. No experience necessary.
Introducing the Art of Collage is taught by Suzanne Rockind, a local artist with extensive teaching experience. She has worked for the Museum of Modern Art as Education Center Coordinator, art instructor for the Ann Arbor Public Schools grades K-12 and for theUniversity of Michigan Hospital as the Hospital School Art Instructor Program Planner and Instructor for HospitalInpatients. Suzanne is currently the Director ofThe Sixth Street Studio here in town. It is a fine art studio featuring drawings, paintings, and sculpture.
