Have you ever wondered what could be made of the various ticket stubs, receipts, treasured photographs or old letters you find cluttering your drawers? How do artists elevate the ordinary to the extraordinary? This workshop will provide a brief overview of collage’s uniquely 20th-century origins, ultimately teaching students to use the principles of design to give form and meaning to their own collection of paper scraps. *Bring paper scraps and mementos to work with.
NOTE: If you took this class last time, Pam would love to work with you again if you want to continue.
