Collage: Beyond Craft

Wednesday, May 14, 2014, 6:30 p.m.

KCDC LogoCollage is not just for grade-school art class, nor is it “just” a craft. Artists like Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque incorporated collage into their work, and it’s widely considered a modernist technique.

Collage is also for anyone who loves viewing and making art, especially those who may be intimidated by charcoal or paint brushes, but still feel the curiosity and desire to create.

In this class, we will look at examples of collage in modern art. Then you’ll choose an image to inspire your own collage, which you’ll make on-the-spot with found materials.

Please bring scissors if you can. If you have materials you know you’d like to use in your collage, or an image you’d like to base it on, please bring them, too.

Instructor Jordana Merran grew up in the Maryland suburbs of D.C., and moved to the big city after graduating from college in 2009. She’s called Columbia Heights home ever since. Jordana has always appreciated and enjoyed making art, and is constantly looking to try new non-paint media (who wants to deal with that mess!?).

Seating for this class is limited.  Please pre-register with Knowledge Commons DC.
