Self Expression through Collage

The Norwalk Art Space @ ADK House

Oct. 1, 2022, 11:00 am

455 West Ave

This class is meant to open the doors into the artist’s soul. Collage is an art process in which pieces of paper, photographs, fabric, and other materials are arranged and stuck onto a supporting surface. Collage can also include painting, drawing, and even 3-dimensional elements. Students will learn unique and experimental ways to combine mediums to convey many powerful messages. Each collage piece will be up-cycled to create a larger final piece. Each week, students will focus on unique and varying mediums, emphasizing color, spacing, and form to capture the eye in an aesthetically pleasing manner. We will study eclectic artists like Deborah Roberts, Gordon Parks, Yung Yemi, Patrick Dougher, and Ingrid Baars. Students will view the film Black Art: In the Absence of Light to gain insight on pushing boundaries and creating with intent. Final projects will be displayed at The Norwalk Art Space with a formal opening reception on December 15, 2022. Free and open to ages 13-18. Registration is required through our website: (If the class is full, please email [email protected] to be added to the waitlist)
