Collaborative Collage


Saturday, February 8    11:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Instructor: Kristen Hutchinson

Create collage in collaboration with other artists! Experiment with a variety of materials in a series of collaborative exercises that will open up your creativity to new possibilities. We will start by looking at contemporary and art historical examples to inspire you. Then we will play with a variety of collaborative exercises, interspersed with individual studio time. Students will leave with one 12x12” or 14x14” collage and a number of smaller collaborative works.
