Workshop: Collage for All Ages

  • CAS Arts Center 48 Main Street Livingston Manor, NY 12758

1 session: Saturday, August 24, 3pm - 5:30pm 

Instructor: Erica Hart

Join us for this open workshop for all ages and play with one of the most hands-on (and devilishly simple) art forms there is--collage! 

Collage is an essentially modern technique that uniquely allows artists to explore arrangements of printed materials and found objects as ready-made imagery. By composing and joining these items to arrangements (sometimes harmonious, and sometimes very unlikely...), you can challenge your perception of the familiar and create a new visual language. 

Participants in this workshop will design a "self-portrait" using both conventional and unconventional materials into an either abstracted or more representational collage. You are free to combine contradictory qualities, experiment, and refine control over texture and shapes. Renowned local artist Erica Hart will lead this exciting workshop. Donations will be accepted at the door.

Free and open to the public
