This workshop takes a lively approach to exploring the interrelationship between collage and painting. Students will employ the historically unstructured medium of Collage as a means of sketching and as a springboard for ideas in Painting. Work will begin simply becoming progressively more complex as students are urged to push the limits of the media and their ideas. As the work done in one medium assists and influences one’s vision in the other the collaboration between process and concept will encourage the production of less planned and more unexpected images.
