Through the use of a variety of traditional and nontraditional media, this class encourages the expression of personal ideas and vision. Students explore the use of many collage materials including papers, photographs, printed materials, maps and found objects. There will be demonstrations of various materials, grounds and ways to build texture and surface. Also included is an introduction to the process of encaustic wax and various techniques of image transfer. This class includes assignments that encourage new ways of thinking about your work.
