Join us for THE ART OF COLLAGE AND THE “CORNELL BOX” - a workshop held on Sundays, January 25 & February 1 from 1-4pm. What is collage and how is it used to express a memory or abstract idea? How do artists combine painting, paper, and found objects to create a new work of art? In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of collage and how 20th century artists like Joseph Cornell and Robert Rauschenberg used collage in their work. Then, you will take this new understanding of collage and tap the creative person within by creating your own representational or abstract “Cornell Box”. No previous experience is necessary.
