GETTING STARTED WITH MAGAZINE PICTURES    3-hour morning or afternoon session. Learn to create collages with magazine cut-outs: gather images based on a theme or concept; trim, layer and explore different arrangements for the collage; tack down elements temporarily; learn about adhesives and watch a demonstration of my precision spray glue technique.

HOW DO YOU GLUE?   A follow-up to Getting Started with Magazine Pictures. 3-hour morning or afternoon session will begin with hands-on practice with spray glues, and also cover the use of wet glues and other techniques for bonding papers and lightweight materials. Students are encouraged to prepare some magazine cut-outs in advance.

WET MEDIA COLLAGE   Recycle a wide variety of materials into expressive, textured works of art. This workshop combines instruction in visual design principles with hands-on exploration of traditional and nontraditional art media. 3-hour morning or afternoon session. Students are encouraged to bring some household discards (for example: paper and fabric scraps, packing material, bottle caps) to experiment with.

Collage Workshop at SBCC
Students experiment with materials at a multi-generational workshop at the South Broadway Cultural Center.
COLLAGE DEMO (not hands-on)   3-hour morning or afternoon session during which I give some background on collage, show different kinds of collages, discuss the materials used, and demonstrate essential cutting and pasting techniques.

COLLAGE CLINIC FOR ARTISTS   A morning session of overview and instruction during which students' specific questions and projects are shared and discussed; lunch break; and afternoon hands-on session. Students are encouraged to bring a set of materials, a work-in-progress or a specific collage concept to explore.

6-WEEK COLLAGE CLASS   This is a 6-session curriculum I developed a number of years ago, consisting of two 2-hour lectures (covering history of collage, basic composition, overview of materials and techniques); two 2-hour demos (covering "dry" techniques or what I call "precision collage" and "wet" techniques or "expressionistic collage"), and two 3-hour hands-on sessions (one for "precision" and one for "expressionistic").
