ART-3011: Collage & Transformation

Collage’ is derived from the French, coller, “to paste”: the collager literally culls from the environment cultural objects and images and juxtaposes them in new and often unexpected ways. The practice includes appropriation, assemblage, and the gluing together of a variety of materials including paper, found images, fabric, natural objects and any other material found suitable by the artist in the service of their overall theme. As such, collage is an incredibly democratizing and accessible art form. The collage artist can produce visually rich and sophisticated imagery quite easily, without extensive training in draftsmanship or painting. It is a method whereby images, identities and objects of mass and consumer culture may be reappropriated and used for re-empowerment. In this class we will learn not only traditional and more current techniques for collage, but also the history of the medium and its potential for personal exploration and expression, as well as social and political communication.
